Monza coach Palladino: I dedicate victory over AC Milan to Berlusconi

Monza coach Raffaele Palladino has dedicated their 4-2 win against AC Milan to the memory of Silvio Berlusconi.

Berlusconi, who once owned both clubs, passed away last year.

“This was an emotional night. It was great to see the lads believe in themselves before the game against a very strong side that could’ve taken second place, so were very motivated,” Palladino told DAZN.

“The players were excellent in every way, tactically, physically, technically, showing intelligence and patience.

“I dedicate the victory to our great President Berlusconi, who would’ve been very proud to see his team fight it out like this against his former club.”

Monza chief Adriano Galliani was with Berlusconi at Milan.

Palladino also said: “Galliani was very happy and emotional, we had a big celebration in the locker room and got soaking wet.

“I think the attitude towards us has changed, especially those more or less on our level, as they sit deeper and wait to go on the counter-attack. We therefore have to change things up a bit, as there are fewer spaces for us to make vertical passes towards the trequartista.

“It has been a growth experience for myself and my staff too, we had to find different approaches, and of course we would always love to see beautiful football, but it is not possible every time.

“It’s true that people have been a little more pessimistic around us recently, but don’t forget we were promoted from Serie B for the first time a year and a half ago, and in that time we have beaten Inter, Juventus, Napoli and Milan. Not everyone can say that and it would be nice for these players to be given credit for their historic and extraordinary achievements.”
