Montella is aware that Higuain isn’t Juventus’s only major threat.

Milan are set to met Juventus in the Italian Super Cup, and Montella is aware of the Serie A Champions quality.

The Supercoppa is set to take place in Qatar on Friday, and Milan are looking to avenge their defeat in in final.

The coach stated the following in an interview with Tuttosport:

“Juventus are not just about Higuain,”

“Paulo Dybala, for example, is one of the best in the world.

“Can we beat them? Well, we have done already, but they are a team that has been built to win the Champions League.
Massimiliano Allegri has a complete team that can play in so many ways.

“As for the €90m spent on him [Higuain], it is the law of supply and demand.

“It has made the gap between the value of the players much wider but if we think about what buys you an average player and what buys you a player like Higuain, that right there is this difference.

“It is because the fans identify with being champions, therefore they want a champion.”

Milan are inexperienced in finals compared to Juventus, but Montella does not feel that is a negative:

“I want to see the right attitude. Against Juventus it is not enough to be at 90 per cent, you need 100 per cent and a little bit more.

“Then it takes a bit of luck – Juve have won five and a half league titles.

“But it is not true this Milan are not used to finals. Only last May, they played in the Coppa Italia final and then I think my team in the league have played several matches as if they were a final.

“Even against Roma, for example, the mentality was like that. Apart from the result [a 1-0 away loss], I was pleased with my players.

“It will be different from when we beat Juventus in the league, but I won’t tell you whether and how I will change my Milan and give away any advantages.

“It is not thanks to me that we will be in Doha. I would like to say a final thank you to my predecessors [Sinisa] Mihajlovic, [Cristian] Brocchi and the players that were here a year ago.”
