Adriano Galliani is glad to see such a young Milan against Fiorentina and reveals he’s seen a “matured” Mario Balotelli.
It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), follow the build-up and action on our LIVEBLOG.
“After many months, nine to be precise, we are playing with the same line-up for two games in a row. It’s full of Italians, full of young players and with a very young defence,” the Rossoneri CEO told Mediaset Premium.
“Until a few years ago we were told off because our squad was too old. Now we are happy to bring so many young players through our youth academy to the senior team.”
Has Galliani heard from Balotelli since his move to Nice and Ligue 1?
“I had dinner with him during the last break for international duty. I found him very concentrated, professional and determined. He seems to have really grown and matured.”
