The players made the last trainning session before the game in the San Siro yesterday.
Leonardo spoke about Mbappe and Real Madrid
Real Madrid’s offer for Mbappé wasn’t good enough, and there no other offers. We do NOT imagine our future without him, I don’t see him leaving at the end of the season
Honestly, we weren’t happy with Real Madrid’s behaviour. Coming at the last week of the window to open talks for one of the best players in the world, we didn’t like it. We didn’t consider the offer good enough since it was lower than what we paid
Inzaghi comments about the game
They have great dribblers and we must know how to handle them for as long as possible. We will play with a knife between our teeth and we hope to have one of our best nights in front of our fans.
I am concerned about the organisation that Real Madrid have. We also saw a great team with Zidane, who won in Spain and Europe. Carlo always offers a good attacking game to his team and at the same time provides them with a lot of organisation.
Ancelotti also made interesting comments in his press-conference, as reported in a article by Euan McTear. For instance, Carlo said he put Marcelo in the game against Celta, so he can be ready for this game, as he considered experience an important factor in UCL.
