Aquilani on 'emotional' Milan debut

Alberto Aquilani was content with his Milan debut, although “we always want to win. I felt emotional before kick-off.”

The midfielder was in the starting XI for the 2-2 draw with Lazio on Friday night, a game that opened the Serie A season.

“It was an intense match, we had the chances to win, but at the end of the day can be happy with the point,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“This is a positive result, even if we always want to win. I will admit I felt emotional before kick-off, but once the game started I focused only on playing.

“Now we have to look ahead and keep working for the next games, as we are Milan and we want to win.”

Aquilani was brought in on loan from Liverpool to play on the left side of a three-man midfield.

“I do like this position, even though it has been a few years since I played there.”
