Abbiati: ‘Prove you deserve Milan’

Christian Abbiati has called on his teammates to ‘prove they deserve Milan’ between now and the end of the season.

The Rossoneri have fallen to 11th place in Serie A after Sunday’s defeat to Napoli, and the goalkeeper has thrown down the gauntlet to his teammates.

“Losing a player after one minute is difficult, and Napoli are a great team,” Abbiati told MilanChannel.

“Every player has to prove that they deserve Milan, and to play in this shirt next season. The game my teammates played at Napoli gives me belief.

“We were a man down after 10 minutes, we showed great character to hold out until the 70th minute, then after the first goal we lost the heads a little bit.”
