Luiz Adriano: ‘No Milan regulars’

Luiz Adriano says ‘there are no first-team regulars’ at Milan and that the clash with Juventus ‘is like a final’.

The Rossoneri will face the Bianconeri after the international break and Adriano says it is one of ‘the most important matches of the season’.

The Brazilian joined from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer and also reflected on facing the Old Lady defenders in the Champions League for the Ukrainian side.

“I think I can help my teammates, as I’ve always tried to do,” he said to Milan Channel.

“Here first-team regulars don’t exist and I must be ready to help the team by scoring goals and getting points for the club.

“I played twice against Juventus in the Champions League, they have a very strong defence and their three centre-backs are valuable.

“We will find some problems, we must work at our best to achieve a win at the Stadium.

“It’s like a final as well as a derby. These are the most important matches of the season.

“I think the team that scores first will have the chance to win by controlling and managing the game.

“Mihajlovic has many strikers beyond me and Bacca like Niang and Balotelli, but playing a good match is more important than who plays.

“There aren’t any regulars, only players who fight for the same objective.”
