ROME – Alexis Jesse Saelemaekers, 20 years old, who arrived on loan from Anderlecht in recent days, made his debut for AC Milan against Verona (then finished 1-1).
“The debut was a historic moment – he then told the Belgian portal Dhnet.be – initially I was really a bit too tense. Especially when the coach gave me all the instructions in Italian that I did not understand correctly ".
“My goal – he said – is now to try to become a holder as soon as possible. Next weekend there will be a derby, Romelu Lukaku has already contacted me to tell me that we will see each other ".
"To be honest – he revealed – I didn't even know where I had to play: seeing who came out, I understood that I would play as an offensive full-back, since Verona was ten but nothing else".
Pioli: “With more lucidity we would have won. Ibra in the derby? There are excellent possibilities ”
“We suffered the right – said Stefano Pioli -, we conceded 6 shots on goal at Verona but we could have been more careful. The regret is that we did not immediately take the lead when we had a sensational opportunity in the first half. We did not have lucidity in numerical superiority, there was a lot of time to better occupy the field and have even more opportunities. Too bad, you could win even in a moment of difficulty, there were many players missing and the efforts of Tuesday made themselves felt ".
