Cristiano Bergodi is pleased to take on his former teammate Max Allegri as Pescara visit Milan this afternoon. 
“I started a coaching career before he did, but he’s better than me,” smiled the Pescara tactician.
“Even as a player, Allegri knew how to read the game really well. We were teammates at Padova and also did our coaching certificate together, so we know each other pretty well.
“This is going to be a special game and we must try to remain compact to close down their attacks. Everyone has to participate in defending.
“I am confident, as I saw the lads training well. We are ready.”
