Milan President Scaroni: “Win Against Genoa Put my Heart at Risk”

Milan president Paolo Scaroni has disclosed the win against Genoa at the Luigi Ferraris put his coronary arteries at risk. Christian Pulisic struck a late winner, but the thrills were saved for just minutes after when Mike Maignan picked up a red card for a high knee challenge in stoppage time before Olivier Giroud surprisingly stepped up to the task of manning the sticks.

Scaroni spoke to Sky Italia (via Tuttomercatoweb) and was full of praise for the French striker who took the onus of guarding Milan’s goal and even pulled off a superb last-minute save.

“A fantastic thing I must say, he really saved Milan. In my opinion, it was a demonstration of the team spirit, which I really liked. Nothing is impossible when you create that spirit.”

Milan have gradually found their feet in recent games, although Scaroni stressed on the win against Genoa being ‘deadly.’

“The match like the one last Saturday against Genoa put my coronary arteries at risk. Instead, we played well in other instances lately.”

The Rossoneri sit atop the Serie A standings with 21 points, two ahead of Inter and four ahead of Juventus and Fiorentina. They return to action on 22 October, when Juventus visit San Siro in what is expected to be a mouthwatering encounter.
