“I explain my concept to the team because I myself am stronger than I was two years ago. Maybe the right word is ‘ready’. This is Milan that is most ready.”
“Sampdoria defended well. But the way we move Diaz downwards gives us the edge in midfield and we don’t just lose the ball on a regular basis.
