MILAN - Filippo Inzaghi spoke exclusively to Milan Channel ahead of tomorrow's match at Sampdoria:
"The Milan fans need to remain calm because they have a worthy team. They are an excellent group. I never thought we would have a perfect match and we slipped up against Palermo but the players bounced back and honoured the Berlusconi trophy. I have watched the match against Palermo again and there was plenty of commitment but did not react and that can happen sometimes. We had 70 per cent of possession in the first 20 minutes. We have to bounce back from the defeat against Palermo but the way we play we can get plenty of players on the scoresheet. However, they need to stay calm and from what I have seen the commitment is definitely not lacking.
"We will be missing some important players for the match against Sampdoria but we have a good squad and we have the players who can come in and do a job. Muntari is not fit to play but we will if Zapata is today. It might be best that we have a few out so that I do not have a lot of players to pick from.
"Sampdoria have great spirit, excellent players but we are ready for the encounter. It is always great to play at the Marassi because it is a passionate stadium."
