Donadoni targets Milan upset

Parma boss Roberto Donadoni demands “110 per cent” from his men and has no intention of caging Milan’s stars.

“How do you cause problems for a side like Milan? By giving 110 per cent, raising the bar ever higher with an intense performance,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“We must be determined from start to finish, aggressive, solid and playing with the same mentality we’ve had all season. What we do need to change is limiting those errors and naive moments that cost us dearly.”

Donadoni pointed out he will not prepare any tactics to lock down any of Milan’s key players.

“Saying whether I have more fear of Kaka or Mario Balotelli, Valter Birsa or Robinho, would be reductive. The whole squad is at a top level with highly-motivated players.

“Milan have many alternatives at their disposal, but that shouldn’t interest us. We must work first of all on ourselves.”

Aleandro Rosi and Joel Obi might not start, as they are not 100 per cent fit, while Daniele Galloppa, Gabriel Paletta, Stefano Okaka and Nicola Pavarini are sidelined.

The Rossoneri played on Tuesday in a 1-1 Champions League draw with Barcelona, so does Donadoni believe that took a lot out of them?

“When you play against one of the best teams in the world and emerge with heads held high, that gives you even more of a push to show what you can do.

“I know these psychological situations well and they can also help to overcome fatigue,” added the former Milan legend.

Goalkeeper Antonio Mirante is back between the posts after his one-match ban.

Parma squad for Milan: Acquah, Amauri, Bajza, Benalouane, Biabiany, Cassani, Cassano, Coric, Felipe, Gargano, Gobbi, Lucarelli, Marchionni, Mendes, Mesbah, Mirante, Munari, Obi, Palladino, Parolo, Rosi, Sansone, Valdes
