Sulley Muntari has underlined the confidence he has in this season’s Milan squad as they look to better their third placed finish of last season.
The Ghanaian international believes that there is a positive mix of youth and experience in the Rossoneri camp and has urged his side to perform to the best of their abilities.
“We want to do well at all costs this year and every match is important for us. We have to look ahead and put last year behind us,” he told Milan Channel.
“This is the way it works at Milan, you forget about last year and get down to focusing on this year. We have to do well this year and I believe that we can. With the players here we will do well because we have a great group of players.
“We have Philippe Mexes, we have Nigel De Jong, and there is [Cristian] Abbiati. Then there is [Marco] Amelia, there is [Antonio] Nocerino so we have a lot of good players.
“The way we go about our business is important. We also have Robinho and then we have the younger players who will learn very quickly. This is very important.”
Milan will face Torino on Saturday evening as they look to build up from their first win of the season against Cagliari in Week Two.
“We will have a very interesting season ahead of us. It is very important for us,” added Muntari. “We have to stay fit. We have players away on international duty so they have to stay in shape. We will have a full squad when they return to get back to league action.
“However, the match at Torino will be a difficult one. It may be difficult but we cannot have any excuses about going there and not winning and taking home the three points.”
