Pepe Reina believes Milan will “emerge stronger” from recent setbacks and face Juventus with “humility and respect, but no fear.”
The Rossoneri clawed back a 1-1 draw away to Real Betis in the Europa League, so are now joint second with Olympiacos, one point behind the Spaniards.
“Every difficult moment has to become an opportunity to emerge stronger. We said that after the first leg with Betis and proved we were more balanced this evening,” the goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia.
Milan have a very tough test in Serie A on Sunday evening, as they host leaders Juventus.
“We face them with all the necessarily humility and respect, but certainly no fear, as we trust in ourselves. We can count on the push of a packed San Siro behind us and hope to do well.”
Reina uses his experience in the Europa League games, but also works with Gianluigi Donnarumma in training.
“We all work together and have fun, because we all want to get stronger. My objective is to help Gigio, because he has the qualities to become a phenomenal goalkeeper.”
