AC Milan confident in attack despite star’s ineligibility
The Italian international grabbed the headlines in the January transfer window when he moved from Premier League side Manchester City to his boyhood favorites, bur consequently is ineligible to compete for the Rossoneri in their European adventures, having already done so for the Citizens in the group stage earlier this season.
Midfielder Riccardo Montolivo echoed his teammate’s sentiments in a statement of his own.
“It is a shame Mario isn’t playing but Pazzini is having a good season and we also have cover in Bojan,” he said.
The Rossoneri welcome Barcelona to the San Siro on February 20, and will travel to Catalunya for the return leg two weeks later.
