CRISTIAN ZACCARDO TO THE MILAN CHANNEL: “It won’t be easy against Juventus”

MILAN – Cristan Zaccardo spoke exclusively to the Milan Channel today:
“It’s not easy to always make sure that you’re ready when called upon. I’ve always worked day by day to improve myself and keep fit for the coach. We won this weekend without conceding and that’s a good sign. Now the real test will be against Juventus but we have the basis to do well”.“I’m a mentally balanced guy and I’m physically quite strong so it wasn’t a problem for me to wait until the right moment. I train in the hope of playing and make myself available. In January my name was linked with a lot of clubs but I always gave my all. The coach told me 5 minutes before the match against Bologna and the morning before the match against Sampdoria that I’d be playing. I thank him for his confidence in me and I’m paying him back on the pitch with my teammates”.“Rami has improved a lot. He has a lot of personality and is physically very strong. When he’s under pressure he usually tries to beat his man with the ball at his feet. He’s already scored 2 goals and it’s a good moment for him”.“It won’t be easy against Juventus. We have to find continuity on our performances. They’re the top team in the league but we’re aware that we have enough about us to get back up the league”.“I think we can do well against Atletico. In the first leg we were unlucky as we hit the post and the bar. We have a lot of belief and just like they won in Milan, we can win in Madrid. Qualification is still open”.
