Milan is fed up of not winning the league games at San Siro.
It's one of the themes faced by Carlo Ancelotti during the press conference. The
coach also spoke about Pato, Ronaldo and Dida.
MILANELLO - Today's declarations of Carlo Ancelotti: "The games like the one
against Napoli are the most important for our recovery in the league. It is
essential to do well and with serenity. We have three games to recover and take
advantage of, contrary to our opponents. Napoli? It's a team which away from
home has alternated good performances to not so good performances. Maybe away
from home Napoli has not yet found an exact balance, but the more time passes by
and the more a team becomes reliable. Pato? He will have time to insert himself
in the mechanism of the squad. I think it's fair to give him the opportunity to
insert him with the right tranquillity. He's cool and balanced and he will not
have problems from this point of view. For his characteristics and speed, Pato
can play with everyone, as he combines well with Gilardino, Inzaghi and Ronaldo.
The expectations which are there on Pato cannot be determined by us. I have
always said that the player is very good and that he will prove it on the pitch.
This does not mean putting pressure on him. I simply said what I though. I
confirm that with the character he has, in my opinion he will prove this very
soon. I don't know if he will manage to score straight away, but he will surely
be dangerous. He's a striker who moves a lot. The expectations are tied to the
fact that he is not well known. I never made such a young player debut. There
was the time to talk to him and insert him and he knows what he has to do. I
don't see in him any reason to worry about. He's cool and serene and will not
have any problem. We think it was a good thing to bring him here early, as he
met his team-mates and his team-mates got to know him. I have not created
expectations on a young player, I have said what I saw, then I might be wrong,
the pitch will tell us."
The other themes the Milan coach replies on: "Gilardino, Dida and Ronaldo? If I
was in them I would think that we have six months to reach our objectives, each
one of them must think to do his part with diligence and serenity. The objective
is the good of Milan, in which all players must contribute. There are no exams
for Dida: he trained well in these days, especially in the last ones. I see him
serene as always. Iznaghi? He must stay put, because he had the stomach pain
following the hit he received in the derby. He must stop for the next 4-5 days.
San Siro? To be honest, it never frightened us, as we consider it our home and
therefore we want to return to win at home. We can't wait to close this
inexplicable fact. Roaldo? He worked a lot in Dubai and during the friendly he
was loaded in line with teh work he did. The light training sustained in these
days at Milanello did him good. He can play 45-60 minutes, but I don't know if
he will play first or the second. With regards to the tactic, we did not yet
study any alternatives to the current system. Seedorf? If he will play at the
centre-left it's clear that something must change as he must return to play as a
midfielder. It's something we have done for many years and keeping a good
balance. For me Seedorf did very well for many years as a midfielder.
Jankulovksi? Next week he is ready."
