"Now we have to match against Celtic on Tuesday, let's hope to break the San Siro taboo and come back from Tokyo with the Cup." - THE WORDS OF NESTA, ODDO, AND GILARDINO -
MILAN - Here are the declarations made by the rossoneri after Milan-Juventus 0-0:
"In the first half we struggled a little on the pitch, but we have been improving lately and we've been conceding very few goals. Only Wednesday in Lisbon we conceded a goal from outside the area. From the start of the year I've played nineteen games, but that's because I chose not to play with the National team anymore, otherwise I would not be able to rest.
This evening Buffon once again showed he is the number one, scoring against him is truly difficult.
Perhaps Milan, unlike other teams, have had a difficult start to the season, now let's hope other teams start getting tired so we can recover some ground."
"We played a good match, perhaps we were a bit tired from Wednesday, our condition was not the best. With a bit more luck we could have won. Today Juventus played like a small team, but there's a difference between them and the small teams: Juve have some great players in their squad who can make the difference on the pitch.
By now we have become used to drawing at home, but we have to continue playing like we've been doing. Now we have some great appointments, we can't help but get excited for Tokyo."
"This evening we weren't lucky with some decisions, too bad. I saw some images again and I think we should have had a penalty. I tried to help the team and find space in the Juventus defence, too bad we weren't able to take home all three points. The slippery pitch certainly didn't help, especially for teams like Milan who have very technical players.
Now we have the match against Celtic on Tuesday, let's hope to break the San Siro taboo and come back from Tokyo with the Cup."
