AC Milan Youngster Locatelli brings down Juventus
Serie A week 9:
18 years old AC Milan youth talent Manuel Locatelli scored the lone goal against Juventus in the Serie A summit. The youngster scored his second goal of the season in six games as AC Milan won four of last five outings to rank second only two points before the leaders from Turin.
Reactions from the big match in the Calcio:
Juventus coach – Allegri:
“We’re sorry to leave Milan with a defeat but we mustn’t let it affect us – we have to get our heads straight down and start preparing for the next game.
We tried to press them high and I think we played well in that sense. We kept things tidy and physically we looked good too.
What we didn’t do was score, of course. They only had two shots on goal through Suso and Locatelli but sometimes things go for you in football and sometimes they don’t.”
Coach AC Milan – Montella:
“The fans wanted to celebrate and it was something you could actually sense it in the air.
It was the perfect night, and it’s all thanks to the boys. They gave everything they had, we must always play with this mentality”.
