MILAN - The Westin, Philadelphia is where Milan have set up camp ahead of their next two friendlies in the USA.
This is where Stephan El Shaarwy spoke to Milan Channel. He said, “I appreciated what the president said about me. His compliment was similar to what Mr Galliani said a few days ago. I feel that I am held in consideration by those around me, they have confidence in me. It is extremely important that Mr Allegri also has confidence in me. I can’t be anything other than happy. With all these kind words, I feel a little bit more responsibility on my shoulders even though I am still young and I have a lot to learn.
“Thiago Silva and Ibra are two outstanding players who led us to achieve great things. Without them the team loses something, but new players have come in who are doing well and I think other new faces will arrive who will make their contribution. Whatever happens, the team is compact and that is fundamental. We must remain united, play as a team, like we did at Udine last February, when we had been written off by everybody but the strength of the group shone through.”
