Jose Mauri: 'Milan rapport better now'

Jose Mauri insists Milan have a very strong interpersonal rapport in the dressing room. “It wasn’t this relaxed three or four years ago.”

The Rossoneri face Fiorentina at 19.30 UK time (18.30 GMT), click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“We have to focus on ourselves, even if obviously we’re keeping an eye on Atalanta, because we need them to slip up,” the midfielder told Milan TV.

“All we can do is win all our remaining matches and hope for the best.”

Tiemoue Bakayoko is back in the line-up after his touchline row with Gennaro Gattuso during the 2-1 victory over Bologna last week.

“The fans can relax, we’re a great group of players and people. I can tell you, it wasn’t this relaxed three or four years ago. There are always going to be some disagreements, but this time it happened to be in front of the television cameras. That doesn’t mean there are problems.

“The fact Lucas Biglia and Lucas Paqueta have travelled with the team, despite not being able to play, is the proof of how strong the bond is between the players. Pepe Reina always did it when he was injured, too.”
