PRIMAVERA QUALIFY FOR FINAL EIGHT

 

After Perugia picked up three points against third placed Udinese, Milan automatically qualified for the Final Eight of the Primavera Championship with a 4-1 victory over Virtus Lanciano. The finals will be held between 9-16 June.

Mission accomplished. Coach Brocchi’s youngsters have made it through to the top eight of the Primavera campaign. The rossoneri will compete for the title durinf the Final eight games taking place between Genoa, Chiavari and Savona in the month of June.

With three games still to play the young rossoneri can start preparing for the season finale, knowing that they have a competitive squad that can go all the way. The automatic qualification, thanks to the second place ein the group, means Brocchi can rotate his squad heavily in the final three games, giving more playing time to those who have played less over the course of the season. The Final Eight 2015 start on June 8th!

MASTALLI TO THE MILAN CHANNEL: “A unique feeling”

 

Alessandro Mastalli explains what training with the First Team has been like.

“Training with the First Team is always great and also important because you work in a complete manner. To train with top players is a unique feeling. I have developed a lot, especially in terms of fitness, because you train hard in the First Team, let’s hope I can continue like this. When you are named it means they are interested and you have a chance. It’s been a dream to make my debut since I was a child, if it happens, I will be delighted. My relationship with the First Team players has changed a bit compared to the start of the season. Before I was a bit shy, whereas now we’re closer and they help me even more than they did before.”
