De Sciglio – AC Milan

AC Milan defender Mattia De Sciglio has insisted his side are fully focused on Wednesday’s Champions League tie with Ajax.

The Rossoneri play Ajax knowing only a point is required to finish second in their group and qualify for the knockout stages of this years Champions League.

“Games that can get you through to the final 16 in the Champions League are always important,” he told the press.

“We’re focused and we want to get through to the next round. We definitely can’t take to the pitch looking for a draw as that would put qualification at risk.

“They’re a good team and they play good football. We’ll have to be very attentive.

I’ll do what I can to repeat the performance against PSV tomorrow as they’re similar matches.

“I’ll give my all. Playing on the right or the left won’t make any difference. I’ll just be focused on what will be a tough match. We have to get a result.”

The 21 year old then commented on his recovery from a knee injury.

“I’m happy with how the knee has reacted even if it’s not yet completely balanced. I’m working to get it back perfect and the minutes on the pitch against Livorno were important for me.”
