Diaz praises support of ‘incredible’ Milan fans and warns Juve: “We are mentally strong”

By Isak Möller -

Milan will take on Juventus in less than ten minutes and with it being a crucial game, maximum concentration will be needed from the Rossoneri. Brahim Diaz is one of the players that will play from start. 

It seems to be a tactical switch from Stefano Pioli as the Real Madrid loanee really hasn’t played that much lately. And instead of Diaz replacing Hakan Calhanoglu, the latter will move out to the left, which isn’t that usual.

In an interview with MilanTV, as cited by MilanNews, Diaz spoke about the game and the trust of the manager. Given that the game is extremely important for Milan, the playmaker should definitely see it as a compliment that he has got the nod.

On the enthusiasm of the fans in such a difficult year…

“We have incredible fans. Today they have been incredible in supporting us as well as in the rest of the year even if they have not been at the stadium with us. They deserve the victory tonight.”

On the trust of the coach…

“Yes. I am very grateful to the coach for the fact that he believes in me, as well as in all the other players. I always try to give my best to repay his trust and to help the team both from an offensive and defensive point of view.”

On how the match was prepared for this week…

“We are Milan and we must win all the matches we play. We have prepared for this match well, we are mentally strong and united. In this match, we will take the field to win.”

The game is scheduled for 20:45 CEST and since Napoli and Atalanta both won their games, the pressure is on both Juventus and Milan to do well tonight. This will make the game very interesting indeed.
