It was great to see that Romelu was so focused and focused. Ibra has a winner’s determination, a fighter, and in that aspect, I believe Romelu is rising. I can only be grateful that I saw him fired up.
“Pioli, the Milan counterpart of Conte, said: “They’re two adults, they said something to each other, I don’t know what. It happens, we have to look forward to it. It’s in the correct dimension.
What didn’t work was that it was much more difficult, down to 10 players, and we were foolish to give the penalty away with the foul.
