Calabria explains what is ‘missing’ for Milan but insists ‘we can finish top of the league’

By Mitchell Wilks -

Milan’s lacking prowess in front of goal has been cause for concern at the business end of the Serie A season, but vice-captain Davide Calabria has opened up on how the squad can get over the line.

After moving into a position whereby the fate of the Scudetto was in Milan’s hands heading into the final straight of the season, back-to-back goalless draws have seen the Rossoneri lose potentially crucial ground.

Speaking to Milan TV (quoted by MilanNews) ahead of Friday’s clash with Genoa, Calabria acknowledged the attacking woes, admitting: “We need to shoot more. We have been missing this a little in the last few games.”

He added, affirming that the squad is ‘confident’ that they can get a result against Genoa on Friday, while talking up the idea of weighing in on the attack himself: “Even though I’m a full-back, I like to get there in front and throw the ball in. I hope the opportunity [to score] comes.”

While two games without a goal is a concern for Stefano Pioli, his side have now recorded six consecutive clean sheets in all competitions. Calabria praised Pierre Kalulu, claiming he isn’t surprised at how well he has played since forging a partnership with Fikayo Tomori.
