AC Milan played their first preseason match on Tuesday, losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich. Giampaolo spoke to Milan TV regarding his thoughts following the game.
“I saw a lot of positive things, Bayern were ahead of us, they had already played several games. Most of our strongest players were out, but we still played well.”
“We tried to live the ideas of the game that I have been working on in these last ten days at Milanello.”
Giampaolo also discussed new Left Back signing, Theo Hernandez as well as the Center Back role.
“I really liked Theo. He showed great quality and great strength, it’s a pity that he was injured but I loved the minutes that he played.”
“The role of a center back is complicated. I have very specific requests for those who play in that role for me. When I find the players that are helpful and intelligent, everything becomes easier.”
