Alessio Romagnoli had some words to say while at an event in Milan. And while some of them focused on his teammates, where he unsurprisingly said nice things about them, he also spoke about the upcoming fixtures.
We’re on a good run. We were disappointed not to have won in Rome because we could’ve strengthened our grip on fourth place, but we’re near Inter and there’s still a long way to go.
We’re out of the Europa League and now we only have a game a week. We must focus and give our best until the end of the season.
The race for top four is long, but there’s so much of the season left so it’s wrong to make calculations now.
We must keep improving. There will be many direct clashes, Atalanta, the derby… Plus so many games that seem easy but aren’t.
We have to do everything to go as far as possible and reach an objective that’s been missed for so many years.
He’s not wrong that the upcoming matches are extremely important, and without any European games to distract them or clog up the fixture list, it’s doubly important for Milan to get (at least) to fourth place in the table and get back in the Champions League.
If Milan are to retake their rightful place among the elite European clubs, getting to the Champions League this season is extremely important, as the stage is laid perfectly for them to finally achieve it after being out of the competition for so many years.
