MILAN-VERONA, MANDORLINI: “Milan are favorites and we’ll have to be very attentive”

MILAN – Here’s some of what Andrea Mandorlini had to say in his pre-match press conference this afternoon:
“Seedorf’s arrival will definitely bring a lot of enthusiasm. However, despite the high esteem that I hold the Dutchman in and how curious I am to see him at work, I don’t believe that he has a magic wand. We have to take advantage of their weaknesses to play a big game and cause them problems. They’re obviously favorites given the quality of their players. We’ll have to be patient and very attentive defensively, do what we know and what we’ve been doing so well in the first half of the season. I’m very attached to Jorginho but his development is all down to him. He did a lot for us and we’re happy for him that he’s going to play for a big club. Tactically it’s a big loss for us. I never even needed to talk to him, just a look was enough to communicate. We have other solutions though in Cirigliano, Donati and Donadel who have always done well when they’ve been called upon.”
