Calhanoglu’s comment on Milan vs Chievo

Hakan Calhanoglu, author of the momentary 1-0 advantage against Chievo, expressed his satisfaction for the win on Twitter: “Our run continues in the Serie A! This team never stops fighting, great character!“.

Marco Fassone: Forgive us for the derby. Andre Silva?

This is the message of club CEO Marco Fassone for the fans: “We are sorry for the date of the derby, we have tried everything. We had proposed to the Nerazzurri two different dates but Wednesday was chosen, a difficult day. On Thursday with Arsenal there were more than 70 thousand fans at San Siro, Inter has appealed to the regulation and we couldn’t do anything. We are sorry“.

On today’s match and the decisive goal of Andre Silva, his second after the one against Genoa: “Andre Silva has scored two decisive goals, they are worth 6 points. He’s finally smiling but we knew he would have a complicated impact initially, it’s his first time out of Portugal. Huge satisfaction. Not winning today would have had a psychologically negative impact on the players, thankfully we remain attached to those ahead of us in the standings“.

Cutrone: We must continue on this path

Our top scorer this season, Patrick Cutrone, also shared his reaction with Milan TV. Besides commenting on the victory, the young striker also expressed his excitement on his first call-up with Italy: Winning today was very important, we must continue on this path. This was a must-win game and three points we could not miss. They were only defending after scoring their goals. I’m glad we managed to complete the comeback. I always try to look for the ball and I hope to continue improving. The Italian national team? I’m very excited, I wasn’t expecting it. I was even checking the Under 21 call-up list. I will give my 100%!

Abbiati: “Donnarumma stays. Kalinic is out because…”

Interviewed by Premium Sport, team manager Christian Abbiati was very happy about the three points and commented on two important issues besides the victory: “Gigio I teased him after his error with Arsenal, I tried to play it down. I told him that I did a lot of errors like that, that he was not the first to commit a mistake. I am sure he will stay with us for the next 30 years”

“Kalinic? Gattuso wants everyone to give their best in training. He has not seen him give one hundred percent in the last few days and has decided so. But Rino does not bear a grudge, tomorrow is another day. For us he is an important player, he lacks the goal. The coach believes a lot in him”.
