Adriano Galliani warns tonight’s game with Anderlecht is “match point for the Champions League. Our destiny is in our hands.”
The Rossoneri will qualify for the knockouts if they win in Belgium, as Zenit and Malaga drew 2-2.
“It’s a good result for us, as it means tonight we have a match point for the Champions League,” said the general manager.
“If we win, then we’ll already be qualified tonight and our destiny is in our hands. It all depends on us now and we hope to make the most of the match ball Malaga have given us.
“Anderlecht still have hope of qualifying and will play a strong game. They are coming off a positive period, but I have hope after our performance against Napoli.”
Galliani looked back to Milan’s trip to Anderlecht in the 2006-07 group phase, a 1-0 victory.
“We had 10 men after Daniele Bonera’s red card and then Kaka scored a fantastic goal. Such fond memories of the Brazilian.”
The current Rossoneri superstar is Stephan El Shaarawy and Galliani laughed off transfer speculation.
“Is El Shaarawy on the market? Let’s not kid around here. Milan have balanced the books and we will not be selling any more champions. That is a promise.”
