Gabriel Paletta is not interested in what people say about him and says it’s early to call Milan the anti-Juventus.
Milan won again today, this time 2-1 against Crotone at Stadio San Siro and they stay -4 from leaders Juventus and tied with Roma, who they face next week.
“If we’re the anti-Juventus? I don’t know, we deal with one game at a time and then we’ll see at the end of the league,” center back Paletta told Sky after the match.
“The difficulties in the match? We didn’t move the ball fast enough, after their goal we reacted well and played like in the last few games. We have many young players and I think the most important thing is the group.
“People compliment me and say I’m a ‘surprise’? I don’t read anything and rarely watch TV so I don’t know what people say about me…” Paletta, 30, returned to Milan this summer after a year on loan.
