Massimiliano Allegri at the press conference ahead of the game against Bologna said "It will be a strange match because for the first time we play at 12.30 but also very difficult because Bologna is experiencing a great time. It has won a lot lately and has great motivation; it also has a good group".
AC Milan will be without Thiago Silva, but no regrets for not letting him rest: "These things happen. I am sorry that Thiago and Flamini are injured just ten days after the break, but they will recover in the holidays".
Speaking of the game Allegri raises his guard: "Bologna is a very technical and fast team with Di Vaio that uses everything that comes his way. We must have great respect for the Bologna and we must play like Milan".
Milan is not dependent on Ibra: "Ibra is a champion, a centralist, physical and technical. All great teams have a player like that, but it is the team that puts him in a position to do well".
"Bonera is favored over Yepes but I have not decided yet. Tomorrow we have to give a different performance to that with Ajax, other things were needed to be done well in the Champions League".
No rejection, however, for the Brazilian: "Ronaldinho is a player of AC Milan, on Wednesday he worked hard but did not give a great performance as the whole team. It’s normal that he was in trouble. Materazzi's words on Ibra? Everyone must look at their own team".
Milan could intervene in the market in January, is confirmed by Allegri: "For now let’s win these two games then we will think how to strengthen the attack based on availability. We do not need anyone in defense; Thiago will be back in January".
