MILAN – Like always, he was a tireless engine: Nicolò Barella covered huge distances, fought until the end, recovered balls and made a contribution in attack. Following the match, he couldn’t hide his delight when speaking to the Rai microphones: “AC Milan are strong, but we showed that we’re on their level. Well actually, we showed that we’re better, and we want to continue to do this for a long time.
“Tension on the pitch? This can happen, but when the match ends and you return to the changing rooms, this is something which passes. We need to keep going down our path in both the league and cup. There’s still all to play for and we want to beat everybody.”
