I think we played a good game against Torino, a strong team, aggressive in attacking the ball. I’m very happy because we got into the game very well and Torino got few scoring chances , highlighted the former Gunner at DAZN’s microphone. This means that we have been very solid behind. Everything was not perfect. Taking the three points is the most important thing. We play every three days, it’s not easy for organizations. All that would be missing is a return to the French team in November and we could say that everything is going well for the Milanese at the moment!
