Bacca ‘respects’ Montella decision

Carlos Bacca respects Milan Coach Vincenzo Montella’s decision to leave him on the bench against Sampdoria.

The 30-year-old eventually replaced Gianluca Lapadula and scored an 85th minute winner to give the Rossoneri victory at the Luigi Ferraris.

“I always look to be on the pitch, but I am a professional and I respect the Coach’s decision,” Bacca said post-match.

“I work for this, to be on the pitch. I thank God that I came on and scored the goal. I need to do my talking on the pitch.”

The Colombia international was also asked about a reported fall-out he had had with Montella over the course of the week, centred around the service he was receiving from teammates.

“I’ve spoken to him and it’s over now. I play with players who can play well. Today Suso gave me good service.”
