Current Milan CEO Adriano Galliani spoke to Milan TV following Milan’s thrilling come from behind 4-3 win against Sassuolo Sunday evening.
After a 1-1 first half, Milan found themselves behind 3-1 down in the 56th minute after two quick goals from Acerbi and Pellegrini. Milan would eventually mount a heroic comeback off of goals from Carlos Bacca, Manuel Locatelli, and Gabriel Paletta. Locatelli scored his first goal for the senior side with a brilliant strike after coming on thirteen minutes earlier for captain Riccardo Montolivo.
Galliani on Milan’s victory:
“It was a spectacular match after going down 3-1. The insertion of Niang and Locatelli changed the game”
Galliani on Milan youngster Manuel Locatelli :
“He has just renewed with the club until 2020, I think he can work together with Montolivo. Today the goal against Fiorentina was his assist from Luiz Adriano last week before the foul”
Galliani on Suso and Niang:
“We had sent Suso on loan, and now that he is back be plan on keeping them close to the club as they are key contributors”
Milan will face Juventus following the international break and have the opportunity to pull within three points of the league leaders if they are victorious.
