Dalot declares Milan are a squad of ’30 strong players’ as he reflects on Verona win

By Oliver Fisher -

Defender Diogo Dalot has claimed that AC Milan have ’30 strong players’ in their squad, allowing them to cope with injuries.

The Rossoneri managed to battle an injury crisis to produce an excellent 2-0 win against Hellas Verona at the Stadio MarcAntonio Bentegodi earlier this afternoon, boosting the team’s top four hopes dramatically.

Milan took the lead late in the first half through a sublime free-kick from Rade Krunic, while early in the second half the Rossoneri made their lead a commanding one through another unlikely source as Diogo Dalot surged into the box and finished emphatically.

Dalot spoke to Sky Italia during the post-match, with his words transcribed by MilanNews and translated below.

On the performance of the team: “We are not a team of just 11-12 players but almost 30 strong players. We have shown that and I am very happy for the team.”

On his performance and on the goal he scored: “I’m very happy. My goal is to do better and better and I’m happy with my goal. I’m even happier with the team’s performance. We all did well today.”
