Suso believes that AC Milan’s late win over Cagliari is a “very important result” due to the results of teams around them.
Carlos Bacca struck in the 88th minute to snatch the three points, finishing emphatically after a neat flick from substitute Gianluca Lapadula.
Milan had dominated the game, and Suso – who was unlucky not to register at least an assist – is relieved that the team finally managed to break down the visitors.
“We knew that all the other teams had won this weekend, so it was a very, very important result for us this evening,” Suso told Sky Sport Italia.
“It was difficult, as Cagliari fought hard and defended very well, but we managed to break them down in the end.
“Bacca is a crucial striker for us, he created space for the other players too and it’s wonderful he’s back to scoring ways.
“It’s early to talk about the Champions League, we have to keep focusing on one game at a time and reaching Europe.”
