Gian Piero Gasperini talks about their victory against Milan.


manager says that his side had their best performance since he joined them. Gasperini couldn’t be happier after their 3-0 victory against Milan.

“Ilicic had a great game, although there were some situations where he is capable of doing better. Everyone had a great game,”

the coach told Sky Sport Italia


“This is one of our best performances since I’ve been here. We achieved it against the Serie A leaders, the Winter Champions, but we were superior in every way this evening and that is immensely satisfying.

“After the game with Liverpool, which was horrible conceding five goals at home, we learned and made the changes we needed to.

“We press the opponents much more, which allows us to protect the defence, and we’ve been doing that for several weeks now.

“We want to keep going, stay in the region of that top four, because we finished third for two years running and I think we can do that again.

“It’ll be very difficult, as Inter, Roma, Napoli, Milan have all reinforced. If you want to make me talk about the Scudetto, then you will fail!

“As I said, we’d talk about it in 25-26 rounds. I think we’ll have a better idea of what’s going on then. It’s going to be very open this season and we cannot shoulder the obligation of victory. We want to win, of course, but it’s not expected.”
