MILAN – Clarence Seedorf spoke to the Milan Channel ahead of this afternoon’s press conference:
“The team are in good shape and we had a warm down session yesterday and we’ll be ready for tomorrow. Both teams are in good form at the moment and we’ll have to be at our best to be able to fight to bring home the three points. Honda and Essien are both available for selection. I’ve known Kakà for many years and I think I’ve seen an evolution in his physical condition. He had some problems before but he seems to have found some balance now. He never had the continuity in Madrid that he has here.“The last two weeks have been different. We didn’t have much time between games and we were more focused on getting intensity out of the training sessions. The second day after a match is the most delicate time for a player to get energy back. Roma are a team that has grown a lot in defense and attack. They’re fast and very dangerous and also very good at holding onto the ball. Theyì’re a compact team and have conceded very few goals. We’ll need to be attentive and lucid, just like we were against Fiorentina. I’ve seen the team improving in defense and attack”.
