Schelotto issues Milan warning

Ezequiel Schelotto has warned Milan to expect a battle when they take on Atalanta this weekend.

The Rossoneri will look to maintain their League leadership, which they currently share with Juventus, when Serie A resumes.

However, Atalanta ace Schelotto has told the Gazzetta dello Sport that his side won’t make it easy for their opponents.

“Milan are training in Dubai, we’re at our usual base in Zingonia, but on Sunday the game is in Bergamo,” he noted.

“And those 90 minutes will be a battle.

“The Rossoneri will be favourites, but they shouldn’t take the game for granted as we are afraid of nobody.”

Atalanta are unbeaten at home this term with four wins and four draws, but Schelotto knows that Milan have a real threat in attack.

“It’ll be better for us if Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn’t play,” the Argentine-born former Italian Under-21 international added.

“He is someone who can make the difference. Let’s hope that he’s not on form.”
