MILAN – Riccardo Montolivo spoke exclusively to the Milan Channel the day after the rossoneri’s 3-2 victory away at Udinese. This is what the club captain had to say to the club’s in-house TV station:
"We needed a victory away from home. We started to have difficulties yesterday after they changed their formation at the start of the second half, but towards the end we controlled the situation well. Attacking deep is one of the areas the coach insists on the most. Calabria is laid back and thinks clearly when making his decisions and passes out on the pitch. De Jong is a big player for us, he had an excellent match yesterday. There were good signs from everybody I think. Bonaventura is important to the team, he can play as a wide-midfielder or behind the strikers. The objective is to be consistent with our results and we travel to Genoa on Sunday aiming to win the match."
MILAN – Mario Balotelli’s brother, Enock Barwuah, has posted the following message on his facebook page: "Balo is back? Not for me… you’ve always been who you are… you’ve just found someone who believes in you!"
