AC Milan defender Matteo Gabbia believes that he and his team-mates must try and beat Napoli on Sunday if they are to achieve their targets this season.
Milan face arguably their biggest test of the season so far when they make the trip south to face the Partenopei on Sunday, in a game which will pit them against a very familiar man in Gennaro Gattuso.
They will have to do so without head coach Stefano Pioli and his assistant Giacomo Murelli, who are positive for Coronavirus and will have to stay at home. Daniele Bonera will be the stand-in head coach for the game at the San Paolo.
Gabbia was interviewed by Sky Italia three days before the match against Napoli, and his comments were transcribed by MilanNews.
“It will be a difficult match against a team that is doing very well, it will be exciting and difficult, but if we want to achieve the goals the club deserves we must try to win,” he said.
“We are happy but we know that the path is still long, perhaps now setting goals is not the best choice, we must be ambitious and try to win every game.”
A lot has been made about the fact that Milan will play ten games in a month starting with Sunday’s trip to Naples, with some suggesting it will be a defining period in the season.
“We are ready, we will prepare ourselves as best we can, then after these ten games we can meet and see what we have achieved.”
