Iachini issues Empoli warning

Empoli boss Beppe Iachini has warned his side that ‘if we go to Milan passively, we’ll have no chance of winning’ their Serie A match on Friday.

The game kicks off at 19:30 GMT tomorrow – click here for a preview.

“We got back to winning ways in our last game, but we were close to doing so on other occasions,” Iachini said at a Press conference.

“Due to some unfortunate incidents, we weren’t able to. Now we have to evaluate the positive data.

“We’re dangerous with more solutions and we’re growing in every aspect. My XI? We’re checking the shape the lads are in.

“It also depends on their physical recovery because it was a short week for us. We’ll evaluate everything properly, have another training session and then make decisions.

“Milan are a good team with quality and organisation. Their players know each other well and they’ve signed some top players.

“It’ll be an important test for our mentality. We’ll have to play with character. If we go there passively, we’ll have no chance of winning.

“We’ll try to bring out the things we’ve prepared during the week. Gattuso’s doing a great job.”
