Maignan on Facing Lukaku: “I Haven’t Studied Him, Maybe I Will”

Mike Maignan will face Romelu Lukaku for the first time in his career, and it is a clash he highly anticipates next weekend. The first Derby della Madonnina of the season will take place on September 3, with Maignan set to appear in his fourth Milan derby.

Speaking to DAZN (via FCInterNews) in an exclusive interview, Maignan threw light upon his plans before matches.

The former Lille keeper says he like to study strikers before taking them on in games, instead of taking notes from the opposing shotstopper.

“I like to study the forwards, I have to look at the attackers more than the opposing goalkeeper. When during the match the attacker comes in front of me, I must first understand what he could do: if he kicks or if he makes a pass.

When asked specifically about plans for Lukaku in the coming Derby di Milano, he left it upto one’s imagination.

“I haven’t studied him yet. Will I study him? Maybe “

Maignan has conceded 4 goals in 3 games against the Nerazzurri, keeping one clean sheet in the process.
