THE BET EVENT – “Worried? No, because things are resolving. I didn’t do anything against the system, on the contrary, as soon as I returned to Europe I immediately tried to fix things.”
ABOUT SUPERLEGA – “I’m not very informed, but I can imagine the reasons that pushed those clubs to act: they are suffering economically, they have sought a way to recover. Rather, it is strange that in certain countries like England it has become a business between fans and clubs and no one asked anything from the players who put on the show. We should play more or less. If you play too much? I don’t think so. When a player doesn’t play he gets angry, if he plays too much he says it’s too much. When the sun is out it is hot, when there is no sun there is no sun … We must find a balance “.
IF THE PLAYERS EARN TOO MUCH – “What is earning too much? Everyone has a value, it depends on how much you need that player. The value does the market, like on the stock market”.
ON THE LAST SEASON – “What made me suffer? The injuries, but in any case they have been, since I returned, 18 fantastic months. Milan are in the Champions League, the fans deserved it. I wanted to win the Scudetto and we were there, in the lead … in recent months the mentality of the team has grown, the collective has grown and so do the individuals improve “.
ON EGOISM – “I like selfish, so many are kings but there is only one god and that’s me. But without my companions I don’t go anywhere and I know it. How many times have I been angry? Every day. I feel alive like this, according to It’s not bad for me to get angry. It’s also a way to show how much you care about what you’re doing and the people around you. If you always say that everything is fine, what kind of life is it? “.
ON THE EXCHANGE OF ARROWS WITH MAIGNAN AT PSG – “Sometimes I charge people like this. Sometimes you have to be tough, sometimes light. Sometimes I joke and sometimes I send a message. This time we made it to the Champions League, that was the goal, but I want to win. It’s a challenge that he continues and I’m having fun. Now I have more responsibility, I feel more a leader. The relationship with the club is clear, the players have to work harder every day to bring Milan back to where it used to be. “
SU DONNARUMMA – “Sorry? A lot. You asked me before if the players earn too much, now I ask a question: what value does Donnarumma have? He grew up in Milan, he could have been the goalkeeper of the team for twenty years, maybe twenty no because he is not Ibra. But he is the strongest in the world. He could have become Mister Milan, like Paolo Maldini. What value could he give to Maldini? There is no measure. Whether Gigio is going away or not I don’t know. It takes two to dance the tango. I would tell him to stay at Milan until the end. “
SU GIROUD – “The more high-level players we can enter, the better. Giroud has great experience and we don’t have many players who have won trophies. If he comes he is welcome. Also because this is a very helpful group, who want to learn and improve, a well-guided work group “.
ON VICE-PIOLI – “I’ve already done it a year and a half. Now let’s look for other things to do.”
ON THE RETURN OF ALLEGRI – “I’m happy, when I had him he was at the beginning, then he became a winner. Maybe it would have been better to have an experience abroad to complete himself, but not everyone is like Zlatan who takes his suitcase and goes to the others’ garden. Each is made in its own way. “
ABOUT SANREMO – “The people who are close to me know how I am. So many times I asked Amadeus to tell me what I should do at the Festival. He asked me to be myself and I did it.”
ON NEXT SEASON – “There are teams that suffer financially after the pandemic and can no longer move as in the past. Atalanta and Milan seem to me to be the most solid clubs from this point of view. Then we will see what happens on the pitch. It will be like another chapter for Milan. . A difficult championship, we will have to fight with Atalanta, Inter, Juve, Naples … A good balance. I will try to win it again, and with me my teammates. “
