Barrientos: Milan won’t change us

Pablo Barrientos has warned Milan to expect the same Catania that has played well through recent weeks.

The Elefanti have moved up to seventh in the table after a recent run of form and welcome table-topping Milan in confident mood, as attacking midfielder Barrientos revealed today.

“The mood is very good with [Vincenzo] Montella,” the 27-year-old declared to the Corriere dello Sport.

“And his skill lies in creating a game that suits our technical qualities.

“We have transmitted a strong mentality and now we have a great identity - we always want to be proactive and we mustn’t change our attitude just because we are facing Milan.”

President Antonino Pulvirenti is urging the players to think of pushing for a Europa League place.

“For now we must keep this low profile and do our best- we must not think of Europe, there’s no rush.

“We will proceed step by step, game by game. I believe that Milan are not an opponent important enough to make us think in any other way.”
