MILAN – On Friday, Milan shot-stopper Diego Lopez launched his new official website www.diegolopezoficial.com. At the event in the city, the Spaniard also took the time out to speak to the Milan Channel.  
Commenting on his new website and his career before signing for Milan: "The website was created in order to be closer to the fans, it’s complete and it looks nice. I hope lots of people will visit it. I started my career at Real Madrid, coming through the youth sector and going all the way to the first team. I then spent 5 years at Villarreal, who are a really good team. I had a brief spell at Sevilla before going back to Real Madrid where my dream became reality: playing big matches in the Champions League. I then signed for Milan and I am very happy about that because Milan and Real Madrid are the biggest clubs in the world." 
The Spaniard enjoyed an excellent debut season with the rossoneri quickly establishing himself as the team’s number one goalkeeper: "Last season was very important for me on a personal level because I had to show what I was capable of. It was a difficult season but from an individual point of view I was happy with how I played, even if I realise that I can and must keep on improving. We’re now facing a new and important season."  
Diego Lopez looked ahead to Sunday’s big match with city rivals Inter where determination will be the key to coming away with the derby-day spoils according to the goalie: "The derby is a different kind of match and the city lives it the entire week. We want our fans to be the loudest ones in the whole stadium. There is nothing much to say before the derby but you have to be a real team. I want to put in a good performance and help the team. The derbies during pre-season were useful in showing us that we can beat Inter. At the TIM Trophy we played 45 fantastic minutes (matches at the TIM Trophy last just 45 minutes, editor’s note). To win again we will have to play 90 minutes with great determination." 
Closing comments on the team’s new strike-force and also his fellow goalkeepers, the veteran Abbiati and up and coming teenage talent Donnarumma: "I’ve also played against Bacca and he is a brilliant player. He is one of the team’s strong points and we need to take advantage of this. Luiz Adriano is very strong, he works hard for the team, he’s an excellent player. Abbiati is the emblem of this team, his presence really helps me with my development. Donnarumma is Milan’s future, we’re all trying to give him advice so he can improve. I always try to give my best in everything, for the team and for the club, both on and off the pitch."
