Suso celebrating his goal during Milan-Inter at Stadio San Siro on the 20th of November 2016 (
Suso was disappointed that his brace wasn’t enough for the three points against Inter and said Milan have to beat Empoli.
Suso scored two fantastic goals against Inter last night (42′ – assisted by Bonaventura and 58′ – assisted by Bacca) but left and right feet of the Spaniard, who became the first of his country to score a brace in a Derby della Madonnina, weren’t enough for the three points.
Suso, who said this week that if Milan win with his brace in the derby then he would walk home from San Siro, saw his goals get cancelled out by Antonio Candreva (43′) and Ivan Perisic (92′) and the Rossoneri have to settle for being tied with Roma in second place after 13 games.
“We didn’t win, so I won’t walk home,” Suso told Sport Mediaset at the end of the encounter on Sunday night. “It seemed almost impossible to score a brace, but I did it – and yet we unfortunately still drew. If we had won, then it would’ve been better. It was a good performance; we just went too deep in the final 20 minutes and allowed Inter to play. We have to win against Empoli.
“My second goal? Miranda tried to close me down on my left side, so I went on to the right and shot from there. My loan spell at Genoa? I wanted to have a chance and Mihajlovic only gave me one chance that went badly. I went to Genoa to prove to everyone that I was worthy of Milan.

“We are on the right track, but there’s a long way to go.” Speaking to MilanTV, the winger – who celebrated his 23rd birthday on Friday – added: “I think we had a good match for 70 minutes. Then we dropped back too much. We had to keep the ball for longer, but our road is still the right one.
“My performance? It was an important game, I wanted to do my best. I said that I’d walk home? I thought we’d win with my two goals, but unfortunately it didn’t happen. I scored two goals, but we didn’t get the three points. Empoli? The matches against smaller teams are the most important. Against big teams, you can also draw or lose, but against the smaller ones, you must always win.
“President Berlusconi? I saw him in the dressing room after the game, he congratulated me. We’re only half happy, we wanted to win.” Suso will try to score & win next Saturday vs Empoli (20:45 CET).
