Post-Match Press Conference: Cagliari 0-2 AC Milan


Here’s what was said after Cagliari-Milan:


“It was a tough match, we suffered in the first half and then we played as a team that wanted to bring the three points home. Taiwo played well and had a good game. The important thing was to win, to get to the top of the table and wait for the others. Merry Christmas to all the fans.


The response I was looking for was what the player gave me. It was important to come home with the three points. Cagliari, especially in the first half, didn’t give us the chance to develop our game. Then we deserved the win in the second half. We made life hard for ourselves at the end of the first half. The second half was better than the first. Cagliari played well, especially Naingollan and Cossu. The team got the ball back well in the first half and did well.


The break is welcome because physically and mentally, we need a break to get back on the 8 January as best we can. Lazio, Juventus are there with us for the title and Napoli are too, even if they’re a bit further behind. We maintain that distance with these three points.


Before talking to the press about Pato, Berlusconi spoke to me. The team has changed. Last year, Pato played a lot and now we have Boateng as trequartista but we’ve played with three behind as well. I make my choices for the good of the team but that doesn’t mean I don’t listen to advice. It’s always nice to talk to the President. Tomorrow there’s Udinese-Juventus, a great game. With today’s win we’re putting pressure on Juventus. We’ll see if we can stay on top or if they can jump us again, or even if Udinese will be joint top with us. I’ve left a lot of friends in Cagliari and in the summer I come here on my holidays. It was important step on my professional career and also personally.”

“Merry Christmas to all the Milan fans. We’ll see what happens tomorrow but we played our part. Now we have a break and when we get back we’ll do what we’ve done up until now. We have to concentrate on ourselves, if we do what we know we can, we’ll go far. We’re the stronger team and if we don’t slip up, the sky’s the limit.”


“It was a really tough game. The first half was complicated and we defended well. Today it was the three points that was important and we’re back on top of the table waiting for tomorrow’s games. There was a strange wind this evening and strong rain but the pitch help up. We got a grip on the three points and held onto them. Ibra scored a great goal and like the player that he is, he got there ahead of the keeper.”


“We’re happy with the result, the performance and the win. For the first goal, Robi did extremely well. Now we have the Christmas break regardless of what the other teams do. Merry Christmas to all the fans and happy new year.”

“It was a tough game partly because of the atmosphere, the wind and the rain. It wasn’t easy to play. We risked a bit because of our own mistakes really but then we understood that it was better not to play too fancy and we got the goal and managed the game from then on. The hope is that we’ll stay on top of the table after tomorrow but we’ve done all we could have done and now we’ll enjoy Christmas.”
