Obi: “Pleased to score. We were all up for it”

MILAN – An equaliser, a series of backflips and the joy of having made a key contribution. Joel Obi spoke to journalists about his derby goal shortly after the final whistle.

“I’m happy to have scored. We really wanted to win it and we ended up drawing but we’ll take that all the same.

“We worked hard during the week. The gaffer had tried me out in that position but we were all ready to play.

“Mancini has some tactical ideas that I think we can really benefit from. We have more options playing with this formation and more alternatives for us midfielders.”
