Attilio Tesser is confident Novara can cause another upset against Milan in the Coppa Italia tomorrow. “Our game against them made us famous.”
The Piemontesi famously faced the giants at the same stage in January 2010, only squeezed out 2-1 at San Siro.
“It was two years ago when people started talking about Novara, as our game against them made us famous.
“That was a very important point in our story, as the great atmosphere that surrounds us now really began back then,” said the Coach.
By a strange coincidence, Novara and Milan also play each other in Serie A on Sunday.
“We are fully aware that tomorrow’s match will count for the Coppa, while on Sunday there are three very important points at stake.
“But it doesn’t matter what competition you are in, as we must always give our all to achieve the best possible result. We’ll face Milan with our utmost potential.”
