AC Milan sit top of the table in the Italian Serie A after beating Udinese today, and the team is unbeaten for some 24 games across all competitions in the past few months. The once behemoth team seems to be back ever since it hired Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a final stint in his long career last season.
The Rossoneri seem almost unbeatable and there is even talk that this is a side that can challenge for silverware this season, let alone down the line.
Coach Maldini was asked the question and responded to MilanLive: “This is also a test of maturity, it is normal that this game has a thousand pitfalls. They are strong, complete and play at an abnormal time after taking the field on Thursday. We always knew our players had quality and they’d need time, but having a team structure that works well helps the less experienced ones to come through.
“I always tell the lads not to put limits on themselves and to be ambitious. I also like to keep my feet on the ground, as our objective should be to improve and hopefully qualify for the Champions League.
“If we do find ourselves in a positive situation, then why not try?”
