Indeed, over the past month, Italian Serie A clubs have been allowed to train again, only their training sessions are limited, not as usual.
“After not playing for a long time, the conditions and even the order of the elections changed. The calendar is tight and we will play every three days, but everything will be needed, ”
“Children practice well, even though no one can reach 100 percent. Lucas [Biglia] is one of those who looks the best, “he was quoted as saying by Football Italia.
In addition to the restricted training sessions, the practice time before the competition was rolled out again was also very short.
“Playing again is the most important and we must live it safely. In Milan, we always try to be careful, ”
“We take the necessary precautions. We always support the return without fans of course giving big damage, but this is the best choice of the worst. This is the only way, “he said.
To be able to step into the final round, AC Milan must at least win with a score of 1-0, of course it is not an easy task.
