Photos: Milan players react to Sassuolo win on social media – ‘I make my problems my strength’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan were able to shake off the critics for another few days as they beat Sassuolo 2-1 on Sunday afternoon at the Mapei Stadium.

It took the Rossoneri just over six seconds to get going as a remarkable run from kick-off allowed Rafael Leao to slot home and score a goal that broke several records.

Milan did have a goal disallowed after Hakan Calhanoglu fired home, but there was no chalking off Alexis Saelemaekers’ strike from close range that made it 2-0 before the break thanks to a wonderful run from Theo Hernandez.

Domenico Berardi did score a free-kick in the dying minutes to halve the deficit but Milan hung on to stay top, with Inter beating Spezia to keep the gap at one point.

Below are the reactions of the players on social media…

Donnarumma: “Nice game and right mentality!”

Calabria: “Three very important points after a great game in a difficult stadium. First place maintained but now we head to the match against Lazio to close out 2020!”
