Enrique excited by Milan test

Luis Enrique is looking forward to seeing how his Roma side perform against champions Milan on Saturday.

The two teams meet at the Stadio Olimpico tomorrow in what will be a tough test for the Spaniard's Giallorossi.

"I'm curious to see how my boys will do," the former Barcelona B tactician noted on Friday afternoon. "The aim is to play our brand of football like it always is.

"Milan have started the season a little differently to the last campaign as they haven't been as consistent as they were.

"Saying that though they are now going through a good spell."

The Rossoneri have won their last three Serie A ties which has re-launched their bid to retain the championship.

"Milan are going for the Scudetto and it'll be a good test for us," continued the ex-midfielder.

"I'm happy with what my side is doing and we want to play well against the Rossoneri. We'll now have to see if we can do that."

The tactician, who noted that Miralem Pjanic is available again, also responded to Vincenzo Montella's outburst yesterday that he would have been sacked by Roma had he picked up Enrique's results.

"I have nothing against any Coach," he responded. "All of us depend on the League table, even if I don't look at it.

"It has always been like that and it always will be.

"Am I privileged? Of course, I do a job that I love and I'm the boss of Roma. I'm not worried about my future."
