Deulofeu: “An incredible night, we honoured the jersey”

By Oliver Fisher -

Gerard Deulofeu admitted he has “never seen a game like this with nine against 11” after nine-man Milan got a late winner at Bologna.

The Rossoneri were down to nine men before the hour mark as Gabriel Paletta and Juraj Kucka both received second yellow cards.

Deulofeu was the star however as his mazy run in the 89th minute set up Mario Pasalic who tapped in to steal the points for Vincenzo Montella’s men.

“An incredible night. These are three points of astonishing importance and we are very happy,” the winger on loan from Everton told Sky Sport Italia and Mediaset Premium.

“We honoured the jersey, as Milan is an historic club and must always be honoured with performances of such determination. I thought the red cards were harsh, though.

“These three points feel like they are worth six. In fact, let’s say they are worth 10! I’ve never seen a game like this, with nine against 11.

“I ran to the by-line and I saw Pasalic there. I don’t do easy things, I try to do the difficult things and when I saw him there, I had to try.

“Day by day, game by game, this Milan of young players with this hunger and character can go far.”
