Centre-back Simon Kjaer has insisted that AC Milan ‘haven’t done anything yet’ despite their growth over the past year.
The Dane was exceptional during the first leg of the Europa League last 16 tie at Old Trafford, scoring the goal in injury time that earned his side a vital away goal and a draw heading into the second leg that could potentially make all the difference.
Kjaer spoke to Milan TV ahead of the game against United, and his comments were transcribed by MilanNews.
“We win and lose together. From the match in Portugal against Rio Ave to Manchester we have come a long way. We have shown our growth because going to such a match at Old Trafford is not easy, but tomorrow we still have to give our best,” he said.
“We have always talked about the group, also for the future. There are different personalities in the team, but we all have the same mentality. We have to keep working. Tomorrow there is another great final.”
On the opponents: “They have quality and tomorrow they have recovered some players, even if nothing changes for our mentality. We trained well both on the offensive and offensive phases.”
On the targets: “We have had great growth, all of us, but we haven’t reached our goals yet. We haven’t done anything yet. Now comes the decisive part of the season and we must be hungry.”
On tomorrow’s match: “A great match awaits us. A battle that will last 90 minutes. We must give our all. If we can win against them, we can win against everyone. It is better to meet them immediately”.
