AC Milan defender praises Rossoneri strike force

AC Milan January signing Cristian Zaccardo believes his side have the most dangerous attack in Serie A.

The vetaran stopper was brought in by the Rossoneri in January to bolster their defensive ranks, but focused on offensive side of the ball in recent comments to his new club’s official website.

“I think we have the best strike force in Italy,” Zaccardo said.

“We have Balotelli who is world class. Mario does some great things in training and he will be very useful.

“We have a very young attack that can do very well. El Shaarawy is extremely quick, Balotelli is a complete player, while [M’Baye] Niang is an excellent player for his age as well.

“And that’s not forgetting the likes of Robinho, [Giampaolo] Pazzini and Bojan [Krkic].”

The Diavolo have struck 41 goals in 23 Serie A matches this far, trailing only Napoli, Roma, and Juventus in scoring.
