‘Milan need to annoy Barca and Messi’

Giancarlo Marocchi has advised Milan to ‘annoy’ Barcelona if they have any hope of getting a result in the Champions League tonight.

The Spanish giants are favourites to progress from their last 16 encounter, but the former Juventus and Bologna man thinks the Diavolo have a chance.

“The Milan players should try to be annoying, especially when dealing with Lionel Messi,” the ex-Italian international told Sky Sport Italia.

“They also need to get physical if necessary because it is never easy trying to get the ball off him.

“Milan need to create the kind of difficulties and that opposition which he is not used to dealing with in the Spanish game.”
