Here are the declarations of AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani after the Serie A Week 22 game, AC Milan1 – 1 Torino on Saturday 1 February 2014.
“The team is growing, they did
well in the second half, Rami in particular. We ran some risks with tier
counter-attacks but I’m satisfied. Rami is a defender that we can count
on, he’ll be a big help. When you play with four at the back, the full
backs have to push forward and that’s what Emanuelson did tonight. We’ll
move forward game by game.
“What I liked was that we saw a team with
desire, character and fight”.
In the second half we ran a lot and we ran
well. The glass is definitely half full. January was a complicated month
with the change in coach and the change in formation. As regards
Biabiany, Parma wanted a loan with an obligation to buy when we just
wanted a loan with an option to buy and we couldn’t find reach a deal.
There’s a lot of dialogue between myself and Clarence and it’s clear
that when changing the formation, you need new players. In June, we’ll
sort out what needs sorting but it’s important not to have regrets in
transfer dealings. We have the same level of dialogue with Clarence that
we’ve had with all our coaches from Arrigo Sacchi onwards. The players
are happy, there’s a good atmosphere. The relationships is as good as it
was when for 10 years, he was a champion player for us. I always
remember that Clarence joined the club in a swap deal for Francesco Coco.
“I’ve always been a protector for our coaches and the last time I spoke to Ancelotti was three hours ago”.
I hear from Maximiliano Allegri often. A manager’s job is to make the coach feel relaxed. Gori
will play for the Primavera side tomorrow against Chievo. They tell me
he has a big future ahead of him. Maybe Petagna and Cristante will join
him as well. I have to keep Inzaghi happy now that I said ‘no’ to
