Ficcadenti: 'Milan in trouble'

Massimo Ficcadenti tries to ignore Cagliari’s own problems and focuses on Milan’s. “They are in trouble and we can win this.”

The Sardinians were handed a 3-0 defeat against Roma when the game was called off due to security fears, as President Massimo Cellino invited fans to attend a fixture behind closed doors.

The Rossoneri are not in better shape, as they have lost three of the opening four Serie A rounds, including both at San Siro against minnows Sampdoria and Atalanta.

“We must try to bring out a good performance against Milan, who are in trouble,” said Coach Ficcadenti.

“We will fight for it and hope to bring home a positive result. The team is relaxed and concentrated.

“Milan have changed a great deal compared to last season, as they have many youngsters and it seems to me they are putting a lot of faith in Stephan El Shaarawy.”

Andrea Cossu has failed a fitness test and is therefore not in the squad travelling to San Siro.

Cagliari squad for Milan: Agazzi, Anedda, AvramovAriaudo, Astori, Avelar, Perico, Pisano, Rossettini; Casarini, Conti, Dessena, Ekdal, Eriksson, Nainggolan; Ibarbo, Nenè, Pinilla, Sau, Thiago Ribeiro
