AC Milan

on Sunday and their manager, Ivan Juric was full of praise for their opponent. Juric claims that he has a soft spot for Pioli, his counterpart at Milan and likes the way he chooses his players.

“I really like Milan, including the way they choose their players, who are dynamic, with good technique and stamina,”

said Juric in his press conference.

“I have a soft spot for Stefano Pioli, as he’s someone who you really want to cheer on. I don’t think they’re in poor form, as they beat Roma last week at the Olimpico and drew with Udinese, a team who clam up really well and are tough to beat.

“We’re going to need a perfect performance and we didn’t have that against Benevento. We made errors in that game and managed to avoid being punished for them.”

Milan have won so many penalties so far this season but Juric believes that they get more penalties because Milan players spend more time in the opposition area.

“I think Serie A referees are the best in the world and VAR has helped improve the situations a great deal. There are still errors, but much fewer than there were.

“If Milan get lots of penalties, it means they spend a lot of time in the opposition area and are good at taking men on in one-on-one situations. I like Milan, they are an enjoyable team to watch.”
