Feeling: “I’m always optimistic. Like all coaches…. But we are going to face a complicated opponent in a legendary stadium. It’s a match that can count towards qualification, I feel the players are already impatient.”
Lessons from the first leg: “We have to forget the first leg. We analyzed things from the first meeting but we have a very clear idea of what we want to do, to have the ball and the chances. We want to continue not to change anything, even if they are a very strong opponent who needs points, like the other teams in the group..."
The quest for a benchmark match: “I am always happy with the attitude of my team. When you win, you might think it's better but I'm always happy. There are things to improve, and we are improving, the players are doing more things on the pitch, but the team has always struggled. There’s always that attitude and that’s a key element.”

Warren Zaire-Emery even more decisive at this moment: “He’s a diamond. He is still very young and can progress but, beyond his physical and technical qualities, he knows how to play with his teammates and that is what makes great players. It's easy to train such a player, with this innate characteristic. In addition, he is humble, and that is the best legacy that parents can give to their children.”
The caviar left of AC Milan: “Before any match, we always study the opponent, the most decisive players, but our objective is clear: to play our match and ensure that they adapt to We. We will have to adapt when we don't have the ball but we will want to get the ball back as quickly as possible. The objective with the ball is very clear and without the ball, to recover it as quickly as possible.

Gigio Donnarumma's state of mind before a welcome that we imagine would be stormy at San Siro: “We laughed about that because we often see that in football and he has already played here with the selection. Other big players have already experienced this kind of situation, we have to move past it and I don't think there will be any particular problem. His kicking game? It's not just this aspect, all the players are progressing in different aspects, and that's our goal. This also applies to Keylor Navas and Arnau Tenas. It’s work that we do with all the players so that they progress.”
