MONTOLIVO: "no one has expressed any desire to leave"

MILAN – The club captain Riccardo Montolivo also had this to say at the Simmenthal event which he is helping to promote:

"My ideal position is in a 3 man midfield. However, I’ll continue to do my best in whatever position the coach wants. I think the squad’s attitude has changed. There’s a great commitment from all parts of the team.

I’d be sad if Kakà decided to leave, but as far as I’m aware no one has expressed any desire to leave. It’s the opposite in fact and everybody wants to stay. At this moment in time, we have to focus on our objectives. Mario Balotelli has great qualities which he isn’t always able to fully show. When he’s able to unleash his full potential, Milan and the Italian National Team will reap the benefits."

MONTOLIVO: "We need consistency in order to reach our objectives"

MILAN – Club captain Riccardo Montolivo was interviewed during the making of a commercial for food company Simmenthal, for whom Montolivo is a representative. This is what the Italian had to say:

"I’m feeling a lot better. I had a problem as the bruising didn’t seem to go away. I’m looking to get back training with the group this week. We had to give a good response against tricky opponents. We need consistency in order to reach our objectives. There are 7 games to go until the end of the season, if we’re able to find continuity in our results we can qualify for Europe.

As for the World Cup, let’s wait for the squad to be decided. I’m hoping for a happy wedding and a successful World Cup."
