Alex Sandro aims jab at Milan amid success: “They are doing well but we are Juve”

By Isak Möller -

Milan have started this season in the best way possible, collecting 26 points after just ten games and thus sitting in first place. Not many expected them to be the anti-Juventus, but that has been the case so far. 

The Bianconeri, as a result of recent years, were the undisputed favourites to take home the Scudetto at the start of this season. However, now that we are ten games into the term, it seems that opinion has shifted a bit.

Andrea Pirlo’s side has struggled a bit and they are no longer big favourites to win Serie A 2020/21. In an interview with Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews, Juve defender Alex Sandro admitted that Milan are doing well but also that ‘we are Juve’.

“Milan are doing well but we are Juve. We have always been strong and at the end of the season, we want to be first. By always winning from here to the end, we will win the Scudetto,” he said.

Milan are currently six points ahead of the Turin side, so the race is indeed far from over and the season is very long. The Rossoneri’s goal remains to secure a spot in the Champions League, the Scudetto would be a surprising bonus.

    Juve are arrogant as usual. Treating the Scudetto like it’s a foregone conclusion will likely be their downfall in the end.

    Maybe he doesn’t know that Juve went from 7th in 2011 to 1st in 2012.
    Everyone said – even milan fans – that Juve will never win the scudetto in 2012.

    Being too proud of yourselves will be your downfall. Trust me, as Milan fans, we’ve experienced it first hand.

    The season is early so let’s see how it plays out. Just because you’ve won it the last couple of seasons does not guarantee this season’s success.
    Let’s hope Milan can do a repeat of 2012 and be the underdogs in this scenario going from 6th (not 7th).
