Giuseppe Sannino says it is “an honour for us to face the reigning champions,” but Siena will give their all “knowing football can be unpredictable.”
Milan visit the Stadio Franchi on Sunday afternoon and need a victory to keep the pressure on leaders Juventus, but the Tuscans also want points to secure their safety.
“It is an honour for us to face the reigning champions who are in the race for the title, but we will try to give our all, knowing football can be unpredictable,” said the Coach.
“We can play with no pressure on our minds and look for a great achievement in front of our home fans. We start two or three steps below them in terms of quality, so it means we have to run extra hard to make up for it and finish off an extraordinary year.
“All of the Milan players are important, otherwise they wouldn’t be there. It doesn’t matter if some are missing, as they can have anyone make the difference at any moment.”
Andrea Rossi is suspended for Siena, while Angelo, Emanuele Calaiò, Luigi Giorgi and Pablo Gonzalez are sidelined.
Siena squad: Brkic, Farelli, Pegolo; Belmonte, Contini, Del Grosso, Pesoli, Rossettini, Terzi, Vitiello; Bolzoni, Brienza, D’Agostino, Gazzi, Grossi, Mannini, Parravicini, Sestu, Vergassola; Bogdani, Destro, Larrondo
