Agent explains why Biglia used his phone before Milan-Napoli

By Isak Möller -

In the last few days, Lucas Biglia has received some criticism from the AC Milan fans, as a photo of him using his phone before the Rossoneri’s clash against Napoli emerged. Now, his agent has clarified the incident. 

On the photos, which were captured by Sky Italia inside the locker room, Biglia, Kessie and Rebic were caught using their phones. Of course, given that all three of them performed poorly, this didn’t go down too well with the fans.

Therefore, speaking to Calciomercato.com, Biglia’s agent Enzo Montepaone has clarified the images. In his words, the Argentine veteran was using the official AC Milan app to check the formation of Napoli.

“Lucas is very sorry for how the images have been interpreted. Biglia wasn’t doing his own thing, just thinking about it is an insult to the exemplary professional that he has always shown to be.

“I would like to clarify: he was simply looking at the Milan app to see the change of formation for Napoli. Biglia is an example for his teammates, nobody has ever questioned his dedication to work and his respect,” he stated.

The Rossoneri will face Parma in a tough away game on Sunday, and Biglia is expected to sit on the bench. Bennacer will return from his one-game suspension with hopes of continuing his good form, thus cementing his spot as the first choice.
