15.04 – Press conference begins

Who do you think is the best? Have you already thought about training?
“Yes, two teams that are doing well, it becomes difficult to lead, and anyone who takes the bets in 90 minutes will be in their favour. They are two teams that don’t care much about balance for wanting to win games, sometimes you find high spaces and Milan knows how to straighten it out. Whoever runs the ball better, gets more in the game, there will be an advantage. We are too (laughs) And then I can’t say anything else, surely I can’t say that the day before. It wouldn’t be right for the players to know today, I need more than 11 to get to the end of the match and they should all be motivated.”

What type of exam is tomorrow’s match?
“I’m retiring (laughs, Ed), I have to do the last few years without exaggerating, at my age you have to deal with emotions easily. It will be a good match for Italian football, and I think Pioli also said they are two similar teams, when I see them I notice the things I am happy to see.” which I pointed out to the players, he was very good at keeping everything together because they had tough moments but they overcame it and they all pulled on the same side and won some details, again this year it will be like that or even more difficult because they had experience last year and they worked there For 3 years, that’s the truth, they also rejuvenated a lot in the last year, I brought the players together for great champions. I would like to see the same intention in the last matches, the last match with Spezia or Lecce… It will be like this all year long and we will have to improve from time to time For the last time it’s time to do these trials for the toughest matches at home.”

Bianchi and Begone are the last to bring 5 of Napoli to the national team. How then will Napoli and Milan compete for the Scudetto?
“I am satisfied with the players, they deserve it. Mancini has always been attentive to the young players and I am happy to see them train in this group, they do their best for muscle and breathing, Milan are healthy forces because they have freshness and creativity. You will find many things there. If you make them work. I don’t know about the comparison, it’s still early. They are the Italian champions, they have some advantages and we have to be good at growing quickly, more than them, because the win gave more strength and after he started again well he reassured them. We’ll have to To go faster if we want to capture them, they are in the lead.”

What indications can this direct confrontation give?
“These are assessments that have to be made later, based on the performance, the attitude we’re going to show, there to go there like we’ve always gone this year, being more attentive to turnovers, every ball I lose to them with the sprint they have they immediately flip into an attacking act, they’re not the Among those who think of the ball on their feet, they attack spaces.

Pioli said Napoli had received unknown but suitable players. Is he the perfect synthesis because he’s already his Napoli?
“Napoli is built on technical players, thinking that it can be a group, a group that plays compactly, with the same idea. They resemble them a little, even in this they are similar to us and they take the best for the characteristics of our players.”

Milan was expected there, but Napoli had an eventful summer. Did you expect it?
“It was hope, I was very curious, we could see the potential, and we talked about it with the company, but I don’t know about being here at this point, time is still short. It could have been different in a positive or negative sense, we have a serious group. We need To be prepared in the long term, the road is difficult. At the moment we are satisfied, in a right way because in football, the episode is enough to change the history of the match and the behavior of the team, especially for young players like our team, and therefore total focus.”

How is Lozano? How is Diem’s ​​recovery process going?
“Demme will resume after the first half with the group, now he does things with the ball but individually. Lozano is recovered and available.”

Raspadori-Simeone, why choose one and why the other?
“One gives more depth, attacks the spaces behind the line, has more physical strength, the other one is different, and they are different because we chose them for all possibilities. Raspadori becomes more slippery when it comes to dribbling, and the second goal tells us that the other day, it also depends on the characteristics of Opponents. Whoever goes deeper is usually more at the end, who comes to take the ball connects more, makes you more numerically superior, these are the characteristics. I am glad though, if we are employees of Osimhen as I said? No, there are others too. If you Depend on one, how can you do without it? There is also a result to be achieved, now glorify two more with the same strength. Put the correct position of the group, we will need everyone.”

What did he say to Zelensky? Will he always pull?
“It’s a way to see if Zielinski plays (laughs, editor). With Spezia, the penalty taker was Politano, the second Elmas, and tomorrow it’s the same, you point to the first and second, but there’s always something to keep the possibility open to change depending on the moment, But you have to have more than one penalty kick in this football with so many matches and in a team with so many youngsters. Piotr got it wrong, I beat the first really well in my opinion, the goalkeeper was good.”

What do you think is the best site for Ndombele?
“He played in all roles, to play low you need grip, speed is important, to squirm, it becomes difficult to clean up the missing ball there. Lobotka’s qualities are important in this role with one half., he has these rotating himself, he is a little slower but more physically impactful He can play that role, two would be his best, 4-2-3-1, but the midfielder could do it last night, with less penetration and depth because Zielu hits the flag, he does it more centrally but he can do So, because footballing knowledge has it all. A little experience in Europe gives you that advantage over options, we must also do it quickly.”
