Serse Cosmi’s assistant manager warns Milan that he “never loses” when stepping in for the suspended Coach. “Lecce want points at San Siro.”
The fiery tactician is suspended after his red card for dissent, so Mario Palazzi takes his place in the press conference and on the bench tomorrow.
“We are going to San Siro without fear, as Lecce want points. The Rossoneri are very strong, but we do not fear them,” said Palazzi.
“Don’t forget, I have been working with Cosmi for 10 years and every time I replaced him, we never lost. Who knows, it might happen again...
“We have great enthusiasm and really want to put in a top level performance at San Siro. We will play our game and no challenge is impossible.
“Zlatan Ibrahimovic is strong, but Milan are not solely Ibra, as Massimiliano Allegri can count on a team of immense quality all the way through.”
Cosmi is not the only man suspended for the Salentini, as David Di Michele, Nenad Tomovic and Gennaro Delvecchio also sit out bans.
Julio Sergio, Juan Cuadrado, Edward Ofere and Carlos Grossmuller are all injured.
Lecce squad: Gabrieli, Di Matteo, Esposito, Giandonato, Obodo, Corvia, Bojinov, Seferovic, Miglionico, Giacomazzi, Piatti, Muriel, Petrachi, Blasi, Brivio, Oddo, Mauro, Carrozzieri, Benassi, Bertolacci
