‘Milan have an incredible history’

Clemente Villaverde has reflected that Atletico Madrid have respect for a Milan side with ‘an incredible history’, but that they have their own potential.

Atleti have been paired with the Rossoneri in the Last 16 of the Champions League after today’s draw, for a mouth-watering clash.

“This isn't just any other team – it’s AC Milan,” reacted club director Villaverde to UEFA’s official website after the pairing.

“They have an incredible history. We respect every team here but we also have potential and will use our strengths.”
