MILAN- Before facing the press, assistant coach Mauro Tassotti gave an exclusive interview to the Milan Channel. These were his comments:

On Saturday’s match against Juve: “A match against Juve is always very hard, we saw that in the first part of the season when they scored against us in the final quarter of an hour. We want to compete tomorrow. Bonaventura is well, not 100%, but he is available and so we shall see tomorrow. Last Sunday we simply had to win, but we were missing a lot of players and in the first half we were faced with a lot of difficulties because of the insecurities that we have right now. In the second half we were able to make the break through. Tomorrow is the hardest match that we could face.”

Tassotti added: “The side can’t be at its very best because the results have taken away some confidence and we have played badly with lots of players out injured. The match against Parma was an important turning point and we were able to win. We know we have to improve with our performances though. Antonelli is in form whereas Paletta arrives from a unique situation at Parma. They haven’t had much time available and it will take a bit of time to see them at 100%.”
