Abbiati: 'Windy conditions are tricky'

Milan team manager Christian Abbiati gives his players advice ahead of a match in very windy conditions against Cagliari.

“We’ve had to play in windy conditions before. The important thing is concentration and not to trust anyone or anything. You must always be ready to react in case of an error, from teammates or opponents,” the former goalkeeper told Mediaset Premium.

“Today the important thing is to get the three points, as a victory would allow us to climb the table and stay close to Sampdoria. It’s crucial we continue the path we’re on with Rino Gattuso.

Nikola Kalinic is in the starting XI, moving Patrick Cutrone to the bench, but there’s still no room for €40m summer investment Andre Silva.

“Andre Silva is a spectacular striker and he works very hard. He is improving a great deal and will find his space during this very intense period of the season.

“He arrived from Portugal, the football there is not as tough as Serie A, but we have great respect for his qualities.”
