This is what was said by Cristian Brocchi in the aftermath of the Rossoneri’s 1-0 win over Sampdoria on Sunday night:
"I am very happy. The first thing I have to do is thank everyone involved at the youth academy because it’s only right to mention them because today the whole club won, including them. Changing formation is not easy and the players tried to emerge from a few testing situations. I am happy with the attitude and this victory is worth double".
"I feel the players we have in the squad have the characteristics to play with this formation. We will get better with each day, but it’s vital that we always believe right until the end. I don’t want a trequartista that just stays fixed behind the two forwards, but one that links up with the two strikers and Bonaventura did that a lot tonight. We cannot be statistic as a team and we must be active in all areas of the pitch. Balotelli was fantastic and as was Carlos. They both played a big role tonight. The support of a trequartista helps bring out their qualities".
