n an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport, Daniele Bonera, a survivor from Athens 2007, demonstrated that he is ready to claim more responsibility at the club he joined in 2006. The Milan defender said, “There must be the right example. It was inevitable that the responsibility passed to me after the generational change that has taken place, but it doesn’t frighten me. Ambrosini and Abbiati, two Milan legends who are still here, have explained the guidelines to me. As for the outbursts from Gattuso, I can only say that perhaps not winning brought more emphasis on episodes that are rather common in any dressing room.”
Bonera continued, “Thiago Silva is an exceptional player even if on a personal level I will miss Sandro more. Nesta and I spent many years together. As for the interview with President Berlusconi on Milan Channel, I think it was a realistic explanation tied to the current economic situation Italy, and the rest of the world, finds itself in. The president’s discourse came across as logical. In certain moments, it is important to accept the situation and move on. This is the basis of everything."
He then wrapped up the interview with a word for the fans, “I would like to thank them because we have been told that very few have asked to be reimbursed, and this gives us encouragement. It means they are tied to the shirt, just as we are. We have been doing all we can since the first friendlies to show our support we are still competitive.”
