The conditions of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Franck Kessié, updates on the conditions of Olivier Giroud, who will not be there. The Milan coach talked about this and more Stefano Pioli in a press conference on the eve of the match against Lazio.
GIROUD – “It was a pretty good stop because we didn’t need Krunic’s injury. There comes a time of the season when we will be busy every three days. There will be no Krunic e there will be no Giroud“.
KESSIÉ AND IBRA – “They are doing well and have worked continuously. They are available for tomorrow. Ibra is great and knows very well what his conditions are. Four months away from the field is a long time. It does not have an optimal condition and will need to be managed. Tomorrow I think he may have a segment of the match, he doesn’t have ninety minutes in his legs. We will see what choices to make“.
KESSIÉ RENEWAL – “I would like him to sign but it is a situation that concerns the club and its agent. I only talk to him about the pitch and I always see a motivated and positive Franck. Our fans are too smart not to put Milan above all else. Too much is being said about its renewal ”.
TONALS – “I believe that its growth is under everyone’s eyes. He is a complete player, with technical and physical skills. It must continue like this ”.
JUNIOR MESSIAH – “He needs specific work and he won’t be with us in the next matches. He is very helpful, intelligent, eager to demonstrate his qualities. He can play on the right and as an attacking midfielder ”.
BAKAYOKO – “He arrived but he is a bit behind in his condition. He is working well ”.
LUIS ALBERTO – “The negotiation for him? I’ve never made any requests, I’m very happy with the team I’m coaching ”.
ROMAGNOLI – “Tomorrow I will field the best possible formation based on what I have seen. I will decide tomorrow morning based on how those who remained at Milanello trained and the conditions of those who returned from the national teams ”.
BRAHIM DIAZ – “He is a very strong player and has grown a lot. He is a classic attacking midfielder with great qualities who must look for difficult plays ”.
FELIPE ANDERSON – “I said he is unspeakable but I hope he will be marked tomorrow, we have the right defenders to fight against the Lazio forwards. He had an incredible season with me at Lazio. Every now and then he seems to come out of the game but has important flashes ”.
THREE CENTERFIELD – “It may be an idea for the future but all midfielders need to be at their best.”
PELLEGRI – “He’s fine, he works with a lot of participation. He is taking care of his situations and I believe he can be summoned ”.
