Montella: 'Bayern win is small foundation'

Coach Vincenzo Montella believes Milan's victory against Bayern Munich is 'a small foundation to develop our work'.

The Rossoneri managed a surprisingly entertaining win against the Bavarian giants, and will continue their International Champions Cup next Saturday against Liverpool.

“It was a well-played game, and I'm very happy because we troubled Bayern,” Montella told the Press after the game. “This is a small foundation to carry on our work with even greater conviction.

“It was an excellent game, when taken in relation to the quality of our opponents. What I liked the most was the sacrifice shown by the team.

“You can tell that the team wants to develop and work hard. This is a group that is getting ready to build something. Our objective is to produce a pleasing football, and that's contingent on keeping control over the game.

“In any case what matters is the performance, not the result. We knew how to take pressure and this I find particularly satisfying.”
