The Lecce coach, Roberto D’Aversa, addressed the press ahead of their Serie A match against Milan. D’Aversa emphasized, “It could be misleading to judge Milan based on their performance against Udinese. They are a club accustomed to winning. We must not doubt: Milan is the team we saw in the Champions League.”
He further stated, “We are ready to put in a great performance. We are facing a great team led by a great coach. We need to bring the anger of losing a result in just a few minutes in Rome. The environmental factor is very important: the atmosphere during the week pushed Milan to deliver an excellent performance. Against Udinese, there was a different atmosphere.”
D’Aversa also commented, “We will have a sold-out stadium and they will find an environment that will push in our favor. We must seek a 120% performance. We have to go beyond our capabilities, then we will see what Milan does tomorrow.”
Finally, he reflected, “Before the game against Roma, few believed Lecce could deliver such a performance.” This was reported by BBC Sports.
