Bocchetti: ‘Future is down to Milan’

Milan defender Salvatore Bocchetti says ‘wearing this shirt is a privilege’, but is unsure about his future.

The 28-year-old is on loan at San Siro from Spartak Moscow, with the Rossoneri having the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

“Wearing this shirt is a privilege that not everyone has,” Bocchetti told Milan Channel.

“I have to give everything, then it’ll be up to the club to decide.

“Left-back is not my role, I’m a central defender, but if I have to play there it’s not a problem. I always give everything in training, then it’s up to the Coach [Filippo Inzaghi] to decide who plays.

“We have to keep believing until the end, there are still nine points available, and we could still move up a few places in the table.”

The Diavolo go into this weekend’s fixture against Sassuolo on the back of a win over Roma, and Bocchetti believes confidence is high.

“It [the win over Roma] was a good injection of positivity, we needed it. We’re pleased with our performance, we played better than Roma.

“We created a lot, but the important thing was the win, because we needed it.

“I think it was a deserved victory. On Sunday the game allowed us to recover from a negative period, we’re a team, and we have to move together in the right direction.

“As for Sassuolo, they’re a team in form, with dangerous players, so we’ll have to be very careful. They have very good forward players, so it’ll be a tough game.”
