Antonelli: ‘Milan have to do well’

Luca Antonelli discusses the upcoming fixtures - “we’re obliged to do well, we’re Milan”.

The Rossoneri have four Serie A games before the Christmas break, and currently lie 10 points behind their city rivals Inter, who are leading the League.

“We’re obliged to do well, we’re Milan,” Antonelli told Milan Channel.

“We’re facing teams within our reach. Let’s also not forget the Coppa Italia match against Crotone, which is very important for us.

“A team does well, above all if there’s a good group, that’s the basis of everything. We have great players, and being a group will help us to finish as high as possible.”

The Diavolo face Sampdoria at San Siro this weekend, and the defender is under no illusions about how difficult the match will be.

“We’re expecting a tough game, partly because Sampdoria have just changed Coach, and because every team which comes to San Siro wants to do well.

“The boss [Sinisa Mihajlovic] will decide the formation, we’re preparing well because it would be an important win for our position in the table.”
