    AC Milan, Montella's comments on the future of Carlos Bacca

    AC Milan, Montella's comments on the future of Carlos Bacca

    AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella held the usual pre-match press conference on Saturday afternoon ahead of tomorrow’s Serie A clash against Empoli. Reporters asked the aeroplanino how many chances there are to see Carlos Bacca leaving the club in January amid reports that the striker’s old boss Unai Emery wants a reunion with his former hit-man at PSG.

    Transfer talks are premature at this stage. Bacca is doing well and January transfers are usually completed during the last days of the transfer window. It’s too early to talk about Bacca leaving as it is early to talk about the future of Honda and Luiz Adriano.”

    Bacca, 31, is set to skip tomorrow’s Serie A game with a muscle injury and Montella claimed that either Lapadula or Luiz Adriano could replace the Colombian striker in attack.

    “They are both fit. Lapadula wants to emerge, he wants to become a star but Luiz Adriano is eligible to play as well.”

    ​Montella also commented Silvio Berlusconi’s words regarding his ‘wrong’ tactical approach during last week-end’s derby.

    “We are playing with a 4-3-1-2 system more or less. Suso usually plays in the middle of the pitch with Niang moving close to Bacca as support striker. Changes don’t lead to an improvement, but one can only improve making changes. The guys want to win and are only focused on tomorrow’s game, not on the club’s takeover. That’s ideal for me.”

    One last ironic comment on Alessandro Plizzari, a 16-year-old goalkeeper who is tipped to become the ‘next Donnarumma’

    “He [Plizzari] has made senior debut in a friendly game, he’s available on the market for the same price of Donnarumma.”
