Nesta has returned to Milanello. The applause of his team mates, the first tests and the first words: 'I'm happy to be here. I will continue the preparations, let's see how my back responds to the workloads.'
MILANELLO - Yesterday he had announced it: 'I have my bags ready, I'm ready to come home.' And today this became a reality. In the morning the defender landed in Linate and then, at around 13.00, he made his much awaited return at Milanello, where he was welcomed by the embrace of his team mates, who reserved him a big welcome. After two and a half months in Miami, where he worked in the morning and the afternoon, the Rossoneri champion is ready to continue his preparation. He explained it himself, in an interview to Milan Channel. Here is what he said:
'I am doing well and everything is going well, I was gone two and a half months, but now I'm back. Let's hope I recover completely. My objective now is to continue the preparation I started, I'm almost halfway. Then we'll see what happens...
'My return on the pitch? The first thing that's important is to see how my back responds to the workloads, then we'll see.'
'It was nice to receive such a welcome from my team mates and to receive their applause. I had been gone a long time, I'm happy to see all my team mates.'
'Also from the United states I followed the situation of Kaká, even if only through newspapers. It's normal that there are offers like that, and it's right to take them into consideration. But in the end it went like it needed to go.'
'The league continues. Inter's result against Atalanta gives good hope that things might change. I've also seen that Juve are doing well. I think that Milan can do well but if we want to win the Scudetto we need to get points now. We can't make any more mistakes.'
