ALBERTO GILARDINO TO THE MILAN CHANNEL: “The 3 years at Milan were exceptional”

< ![CDATA[MILAN – Former Milan and Fiorentina striker Alberto Gilardino spoke exclusively to the Milan Channel earlier today. Having played for both sides, who better than the Italian to have his say on this Sunday’s match. This is what he had to say: "The 3 years at Milan were exceptional and they will always be a part of me. I’m happy with how Milan are doing, with how coach Inzaghi is working and all the players. I remember my experiences with Milan and Fiorentina with pride and happiness. At Milan I played with some exceptional champions, won lots and scored lots. I lived very well in Florence and who knows whether I’ll move there when I finish playing. I can say that Inzaghi as a player was always very charged up. He passes on his tension and his anger to the players, just like he used to do as a player. They are things that you have naturally inside and transmit to the team. I’ve seen the odd Milan match and at Verona they showed the capacity to suffer and to score. The coach and the club know how to wait. I think they will also do this with Fernando Torres. I’ve always liked him and he has incredible qualities. He will definitely do really well. In China, Milan are really loved, but to tell the truth, they are everywhere. I played at Genoa and my thoughts were immediately with the city. I’m sorry for what has happened. They’re a strong people and they will know how to pick themselves up. I’m close to all of those from Genoa. Milan-Fiorentina? It will be a brilliant match. Best wishes to Bonera, Pazzini, Montolivo and the others. I’m happy that they’re playing for Milan."]]>
