“I have strong opinions but I can’t always say what I think. Otherwise it would be on the front page and I don’t want that, but if it was up to me, I wouldn’t have done so, but if the president thinks the best thing for the team is to sign players and let others leave, we must respect and support the decision. (…) with new players the style will change and it may change for better or worse. I hope it’s for the better since the players are of a very good standard. The normal thing is that they’ll adapt well. Di Maria and Xabi were very important to us but they’re gone and we should be happy with the new players. I’m sure we’ll be fine.” (x) (x)
Marco van Ginkel first interview:"I’m very happy, Milan is a great club where many Dutchmen played.
I know Nigel [De Jong] from the National Team, I spoke with him about Milan and he told me a lot of great things about the club.
I’m a defensive midfielder, but I also know how to score; I’m a box-to-box player, like they say in England. I want to be important for the team, I’m a team player.
I haven’t spoken with Mister Inzaghi yet. I did speak with Fernando [Torres] though, we talked about Milan; he’s a good lad, I look forward to seeing him again here.”
