Baresi likes young Milan

Milan legend Franco Baresi is increasingly impressed with the young team and feels this weekend will be crucial.

The former captain spoke to reporters at a Fondazione Milan event today.

“Mario Balotelli is an important asset, he plays for Milan and therefore they need to get the best out of him.

“The team plays well now and has its own identity. It’s a shame they dropped two points against Udinese on Sunday, but must always target important objectives.

“For Sunday it’s important to get everyone back in shape, because they cannot drop any more points. There’s a head-to-head like Fiorentina-Inter and Milan must make the most of these opportunities.”

Baresi is particularly impressed by the Rossoneri’s focus on youth at the back.

“Alessio Romagnoli is young, but has a lot of character and is confirming his great quality. Gianluigi Donnarumma seems older than 16 because he really owns such a difficult role as goalkeeper, especially at San Siro.”
