Milan have changed their goalkeeper from

Donnarumma

to Maignan but there is also something new for women. Laura Giuliani, after many victories with Juventus Women, is the new Rossoneri extreme.

The goalkeeper of the national team of Coach Milena Bertoltini will undoubtedly be the owner despite the fact that she has remained in the squad (for now Maria Korenciova).

A small disgrace, if we can say so, done to the Bianconeri by the Rossonere to strengthen themselves in view of the UEFA Women’s Champions League but also to try to undermine the Italian champions.

Here is how the Rossoneri club welcomed the goalkeeper of the blues, protagonist of super 4 years with the black and white jersey, “AC Milan is pleased to announce that it has registered the player Laura Giuliani.

Italian international goalkeeper Laura Giuliani was officially presented as an AC Milan player and on her first interview to Milan Tv, she addressed some important topics such as her mindset in every game, her role models and much more.

Here’s what she said:

On being at AC Milan:

“For me it is an emotion, to be here as a Milanese, to wear these colors always have a particular effect and I am really excited about the project and I can’t wait to start this new adventure.”

On AC Milan’s project:

“Surely the project is exciting, especially a concrete project like this, concerned about the future of the team and, as a goalkeeper, I am really happy to test myself alongside the big names who have played here.”

On meeting her teammates from Italy women’s national team at Milan:

“I have a good relationship with everyone, so I’m really happy to return to the family. When I talk to them, I always have the feeling of knowing them for a lifetime, even if it’s not the case. This is definitely a good starting point. I talked to them, they wished me good luck and I can’t wait to meet them.”

On what she brings to the team:

“I bring Laura to the full, and I bring my personality, my professionalism, also my vision of the role, my interpretation of the role in which communication is a fundamental part, therefore, I hope to interact at best with my companions, especially on the defense, to build a solid foundation and try to work in a group as best as possible during the season.”

On her take on AC Milan’s team:

“The team has always been a very compact, a team that runs during all the match, very physically, overly aggressive performance on all the balls. Upfront they have always had Giacinti, which in my opinion one of the added values of this team for her wickedness and, moreover, lately she has also grown a lot from a technical and tactical point of view, of movements.

Before the games I studied her particularly despite knowing enough and then, of course, talking about individualities, now they have taken so much quality in the midfield, they have all the credentials to do well.”

On playing in the Champions League:

“Listening to the Champions League’s anthem makes you shiver down to your spine. I believe that all athletes, all footballers dream of one day to play in this competition so, being part of it means being if you earned it in the previous season you and surely, we’ll be highly motivated, especially being the first participation for the club, for sure, the emotion will play a fundamental role, but working as a team and putting on the field all the excitement and turning those emotions into energy on the pitch, we will be able to bring home good results.”

On her mindset as a professional athlete:

“I am an athlete who never stops looking at the growth points that you can have. The fact of coming here in my opinion is a great stimulus for me, to go and improve certain aspects that maybe I have not trained previously or maybe have different requests from the coach, from the club.

Consequently, being able to go to work on points where there is still room for improvement for me is really important. More than anything, I think that here there are all the necessary conditions to do well and then when there is work to be done, I always put myself at the forefront, so I am really happy.”

On her role models:

“My idol in the past has always been

Buffon

, I grew up watching his saves. There was also Casillas, who was one of the strongest goalkeepers in the world then, however, Buffon has always been my idol.

I was lucky enough to watch also Dida a lot, when there was the rivalry with Buffon, then over the years I wasn’t fixed in just a single goalkeeper, I tried to broad a little my horizons, trying to go and take the strengths of each goalkeeper to create an ideal one for me.”

On her dissertation theme:

“’Number 1: Play with the mind’ was the core aspect of my thesis which is the psychology of the goalkeeper, then of all those psychological aspects that are the basis of the goalkeeper, of the role of a number one that then contains many facets within it.

I thought of telling my daily life, then my psychological daily life, therefore, the preparation for training the preparation, for the game, some tricks to ease the pressure, the psychological pressure before important matches or maybe the emotions.

There are many aspects that, if not exploited in the right way, can bring you problems. Consequently, of course, studying these aspects specifically I realized how much of this stuff I already done myself without knowing that they were established systems, already in use.

Instead, on the other hand, to distort or extrapolating some determined concepts and then, to put them into practice, I must admit that it has being very beneficial to me.”

Domestic violence joke

Dempsey, a former Orioles catcher and coach who usually hosts the team's pre-game and post-game shows on Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, was making his first appearance of the season in the broadcast booth during the Orioles' game against the Cleveland Indians.

During the third inning, Dempsey and play-by-play man Gary Thorne were joined in the booth by Laura Giuliani, the ex-wife of Orioles left fielder Jay Gibbons. Giuliani was promoting a fundraiser the next day intended to help fight domestic violence.

"Laura, will this kind of help Jay in the domestic violence area? If he doesn't start getting a few more hits, you might grab him around the neck and rough him up a little bit," Dempsey said. "[Is] this money going to go to help him a little bit with maybe some of the hospital bills or something like that?"

To that, Giuliani replied, "I don't know, Rick. I don't think I'm encouraging that. I'm definitely not ..."

"Not going there?" Dempsey interjected.

"Not going there," Giuliani replied.

"All right, I'll domestically violate him if he doesn't start getting some more hits," Dempsey said.

Later, he admitted, "I certainly didn't mean to offend anyone with my comments. I was trying to bring some levity to the fact that Jay hasn't been hitting as well as he wanted to. ... It is a serious issue, and I didn't mean to make a joke about that at all."

"I just think he spoke before he thought in that instance," Gibbons said. "It's a very touchy subject. My wife went there to help these people out. He really can't make light of the situation. She was a little upset about it, but I explained to her that 'I am sure Rick didn't mean anything by it, and he made a mistake.'"
