Consigli: ‘Close gap to Milan!’

Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli sees an opportunity “to get even closer” to Milan.

The Neroverdi are in seventh-place in Serie A, one place below Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side, but trail the Rossoneri by six points.

The pair meet at Mapei Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and the goalkeeper sees an opportunity for Eusebio Di Francesco’s men.

“Sassuolo are worth more than just staying up,” Consigli told reporters outside of Sassuolo’s training ground.

“We had 31 points after the first half of the season. Now there’s Milan above us and we have the opportunity to get even closer, and we have to take it, while being aware that they’re a good team going through a good spell.”
