Vincenzo Montella’s AC Milan side ring in the new calendar year by defeating Cagliari 1-0. The Italian spoke about the result and overall performance on Sunday.
Vincenzo Montella to Milan TV:
“Coming back from the winter break is always tough. Even many of our rivals scored in extra time to earn wins this week. Lapadula? He’s a fan favorite. He came on today and worked hard. Bacca showed to be a great striker. To have the instinct at that stage in the game and put everything else behind him.”
“The defense continues to play with consistency which gives a sense of security to the entire team. Siniša [Mihajlovic] and myself have the same issue to deal with; a match Thursday and one Monday. Therefore, neither of us has much of an excuse.”
This Thursday, the Rossoneri and Toro lock horns in the Coppa Italia at 3:00PM EST.
