Gila Interview

Just before second half of the season resumes Alberto Gilardino has given his though about the matches to come for www.acmilan.com.

Gila, in the first match of 2008, you started out really well by scoring a brace, even though in a friendly.

Gila- "Yes, I'm happy because even though it was just a friendly game, these are goals which always serve and arrived following a week of work in which the entire team did well. The Dubai training camp was helpful for us to train in the best conditions also thanks to the temperature which was about ten degrees higher than that of Italy. Personally I'm happy with my performance because for an attacker it's always important to be ready for the coach, even though it's just a friendly game, because these are the occasions which allow you to find the best condition."

How do you think it will be to play together with Pato and Ronaldo?

"I have always been used to play as an attacker close to a trequartista here at Milan, because it has always given me good advantages. It also happened to me to play as a lone striker, but to play with a team-mate upfront is surely better to put the opponents in difficulty."

The Gilardino-Pato-Kaka attack is the youngest attack in Serie A.

"Yes, now we shall see what the coach chooses for Sunday. For me it would be nice to play from the start in the game against Napoli. Pato and Kaka are two players of great quality. At Milan there are strong young players, but there are also thirty year olds who are very important for us, like Ronaldo and Inzaghi."

The first official commitment of 2008 will be against Napoli.

Gila- "Yes, from Sunday we shall have to start doing well against Napoli, because now for us starts a cycle where we have to play every three days. We shall have to be ready. The coach has the entire squad available and it will be important to start well straight away against Napoli, because we want to win our first game at San Siro."
