AC Milan News's post | Latest updates on Sulia
Antonini: "I've supported Milan since I was 3 years old. I supported Juventus before that."
Part 1 of the interview with Luca Antonini during the show "Undici" on Mediaset.
"We had prepared well for the Napoli match. We played very well for the first 20 minutes, but then they equalized immediately and that was a psychological blow.
In the end we did well to get the 1 point when we we’re 10 against 11, even though it was important for us to win in order to get closer to the second place."
"El Shaarawy? He’s very calm. He’s young and only 20 years old. He received a knock on his knee, but it’s nothing serious.
If his form has dropped? No, I don’t think that his form has dropped. Perhaps he’s not scoring as much as before, but he works hard for the team - also in the defensive phase. He’s a great guy."
"The fact that I’ve been on the bench a lot? It’s tough for anyone to watch their team-mates play while being on the bench.
The important thing is to stay focused, work hard in training and try to convince the coach that he’s wrong. The desire to show the coach that he’s wrong is immense."
"De Sciglio? He was already showing some good signs last season, and he has demonstrated himself to be a great player."
"If I expected more playing time? I had some physical problems up until the end of October last year, and during that period, Constant played on the left side, and he did a good job. De Sciglio has also played as a left back and he has also done a good job. There’s a lot of competition for the left back position."
"It was difficult at the start of the season because many players had left - 7-8 players who were regular starters.
We were starting a new project, and we just needed a bit of time to get it running and then we got then good results."
"I have been a Milan fan since I was 3 years old. I supported Juventus before that, but my uncle made me switch teams."
Part 2 of the interview will follow shortly.
