AC Milan winger Samu Castillejo has insisted he and his team-mates must ‘be a family’ after Thursday night’s win over SPAL.
The Rossoneri were given a scare by their visitors on Halloween night as it took them 62 minutes to break the deadlock against a side without an away point or away goal all season.
In the end it was substitute Suso who got the winner, curling a trademark free-kick over the wall and into the bottom corner.
Suso’s form had been under serious scrutiny prior to the game and Castillejo started ahead of him but was withdrawn not long after the break.
The Spaniard was happy for his compatriot as he spoke to the microphones of Milan TV after the game.
“I am happy with how the match went. I also had the opportunity to score. When I play, I always put in play desire and heart. I’m happy for my game and for the win,” Castillejo said (via MilanNews.it).
“In Italian football it is never easy to win. All teams prepare well. SPAL defends high, but we had prepared the game well and in the end we won.
“We are a team. We have to fight together, we have had a difficult time. The team must be a family, you can’t think of yourself.
On Lazio: “They are a very strong team, against them it is never easy. Sunday will be a battle, we must give everything we have inside to win.”
