AC Milan CEO Adriano Gailliani was interviewed by Sky ahead of the meeting against Atalanta and praised the team’s recent signing: “I have got a very good impression of Honda, very good. Yesterday, he told me that he will only be happy when he is playing well and AC Milan are winning.”

Galliani also commented on the bidding for Radja Nainggolan who is being chased by several clubs: “AC Milan will not participate in this bidding, even though I no longer believe there is any bidding, I believe that it is already concluded.”
