Saelemaekers admits to having ‘low moments’ and backs Milan’s ‘strong and united’ group

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan winger Alexis Saelemaekers has stressed that the ‘united’ squad believe that they can go on and get the points necessary to win the Scudetto.

Milan are heading into the last two games of the season knowing they need a maximum of four points to secure a first league title since 2010-11. However, Atalanta and Sassuolo are the opponents still to face so nobody is taking anything for granted at the moment.

The first game will be on Sunday afternoon when Gasperini’s side come to San Siro, and a victory would mean that Inter have to win against relegation battlers Cagliari in order to send the title race into the final round.

Saelemaekers spoke to SportMediaset about the last two games of the season and the Scudetto fight against Inter, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.

“In a footballer’s career there are low moments, but I continued to give my best every day in training and this work helped me in Sunday’s match against Verona. Maybe the good performance I did I wouldn’t have done two months ago, this is the result of the work,” he said.

“Atalanta? We know what a group we are and that we are strong, but we also know that Atalanta are a strong team. If we listen carefully to what Mr. Pioli says and if we put our heart into it as we have always done since the beginning of the season, I think we can take the 3 points.

“Scudetto? We believed in it from the beginning that we believe in it. We knew that after what we showed last year we could play for it. We are a strong and united group, and this is more important. The teams that win the Scudetto win it because they are united. It would be nice to win for all the work we have done in two years. We hope to win it.”
