MILAN – This is what Daniele Massaro had to say in an exclusive interview to the Milan Channel at Milanello earlier today:
"There are some important points up for grabs before the derby. No one believed there was even a minor chance of qualifying for the Europa League. However, the chance is there and we need to try until the very end and reach this goal, which not so long ago, seemed out of reach. Winning helps with morale. The performances lately perhaps haven’t been the best, but in the final stages of the season, the most important thing is to bring home the 3 points.
Abate and De Sciglio are two fresh pair of legs, let’s hope they give their best in the final stages of the season. We’ve missed El Shaarawy a lot this season. It’s always better to have a player of his caliber available to the coach. He’s been out far too long, in a season which may have been different with his goals and performances. Let’s hope to have him back as soon as possible and to maybe see him back in action again with the Italian national team."

MILAN - Ahead of Milan-Livorno, the official Livorno website is reporting that the Tuscans had a very busy day yesterday. The players went to a memorial service in the morning for Morosini at the cathedral in Piazza Grande followed by a training session. For the training session, the players were split into two groups. Those that played against Chievo took part in a light session which involved a jog and then a work-out in the gym, while the others took part in a more intense session. The only absentee is Bardi who is away with the Italian national team at Coverciano. Livorno will train every day this week as Round 34 of Serie A will be played on Saturday in light of the fact that it’s Easter the following day.
