Former AC Milan defender Mauro Tassotti discussed yesterday’s derby between the Rossoneri and Inter in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper la Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Today’s AC Milan have many reasons to be happy. They have just returned from an exciting journey in Italy and Europe, they won and have only conceded one goal.

“The value of the players is high and constantly growing. Playing on equal terms with Inter is another demonstration of unity. Pioli should be given credit.”

The Rossoneri have continued their strong start to the season, beating rivals Inter in a close 2-1 clash yesterday at the San Siro.

Two early goals from 39-year-old Swedish veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic were enough to best Antonio Conte’s squad, whose exciting start in the league has seemingly slowed down now.

Inter won their first two games against Fiorentina and Benevento, before suffering a tough 1-1 draw with Lazio in Rome.

The club lost six players who tested positive for Covid-19, limiting their squad and Conte’s options for the derby.

Two of the players were starting defenders Milan Skriniar and Alessandro Bastoni, which created a problem for Conte.

The two goals yesterday were the fault of backup defender Aleksandar Kolarov, who did not impress in a more central role.
