    Milan. Montella: "Verratti impresses me. Bacca should focus more on scoring"

    Milan boss Vincenzo Montella has been speaking ahead of Sunday’s home clash against Pescara.’s Daniele Longo was present. Here are the highlight's
    ON VERRATTI: “I don’t want to talk about the transfer market at this time. During my time at Fiorentina we were close to picking him up but ultimately we failed. He is a very strong player who is pleasing to many different clubs”
    ON REFEREEING DECISIONS: “I sincerely believe that we accept the decisions taken by the referees. Their job is very difficult and we have both benefited and been the victims of these decisions. Last week it seemed a definite foul on Locatelli and this made me angry”.
    ON POSSIBLE REINFORCEMENTS AND PASALIC: “As I said before, it’s my job to bring in as many new players as possible. Sosa is starting to do well now likewise Locatelli. Vangioni arrived here injured and if I could I would take Pasalic on a permanent deal. He’s growing and deserves a place in the team”.
    ON THE SPIRIT OF GENOA: “I want to see the same spirit we had for long stretches of the game in Genoa. We have shown our quality despite going down to ten men. I think this kind of spirit can really make the difference”.
    ON LAPADULA: “Sorry, but I cannot give a judgement like the public. He’s doing very well however”.
    ON BERTOLACCI: “Next week he will have another examination so we are waiting for news”.
    ON BACCA: “I’ve heard too many times that a striker plays well even though he doesn’t score. Everyone would like to have a striker that plays well even if he doesn’t score. I prefer him to focus on what he does best and that is to score goals”.
