Antonio Nocerino has made his wishes for 2012: “I want to win the Scudetto with Milan, then play Euro 2012 for Italy.”
The midfielder was signed in the final minutes of the summer transfer market for just €500,000 from Palermo, but has become one of the key players at San Siro.
“I want to win the Scudetto with Milan, then play Euro 2012 for Italy. Up until now I have always been called by Cesare Prandelli, so I hope to earn my place at the European Championships,” said the midfielder.
“If I don’t, then it’ll feel like going to Rome and not seeing The Pope.”
Before that, Milan continue to challenge Juventus for the Scudetto, sitting just one point behind the Winter Champions.
“It’s not true that Juve are hungrier than we are. I am starved, just like my teammates who have won it all, but try to give their best every time anyway.
“I don’t know if I am of Milan quality, but I am never satisfied and won’t get big-headed. I hope to be at least 1 per cent of the quality shown by the champions I play alongside.”
