Former AC Milan striker Alberto Gilardino warned the Rossoneri that Mohamed Salah would be the biggest threat to Mike Maignan’s goal.
The 2021-22 Champions League competition is about to start again and is eagerly awaited by football fans everywhere. Moreover, on matchday, there will be a big match between Liverpool vs AC Milan.
This match will be played at Anfield. This is the third meeting between the two clubs with a long history in Europe.
For Milan, this is the first time to visit Liverpool headquarters. They will feel the famous Anfield atmosphere when the Reds squad hosts their opponents in the Champions League.
Salah is Liverpool’s biggest threat to Milan
Alberto Gilardino said the match at Anfield later would be very tough for AC Milan. Because everyone knows Liverpool are very fierce when they play at their headquarters at Anfield.
Gilardino then also advised Milan to be extra vigilant about Mohamed Salah. Because he is a very dangerous player and he knows very well the quality of the Egyptian player.
“Milan will suffer, but they also know how to cause problems for the Reds,” Gilardino told Gazzetta Dello Sport.
“I Rossoneri will play a great match. What I fear the most is Momo Salah, he is my teammate in Florence and I like [Jurgen] Klopp, he is a coach who is practical and plays direct.
Pioli is optimistic that Liverpool can beat Liverpool
Alberto Gilardino added, AC Milan will indeed suffer against Liverpool. But he believes Stefano Pioli will find a way to neutralize the pressure from the hosts.

The proposal is rejected, Milan is still nagging to take Asensio from Madrid
Italian League giants AC Milan are reportedly still trying to sign Marco Asensio from Real Madrid even though they have been rejected before.
Milan is busy looking for a new attacking midfielder in the summer of 2021. Because they were dumped by Hakan Calhanoglu.
Some players reportedly entered the target of Milan. One of them is Asensio.
However, according to Fichajes’ report, Asensio refused to move from Madrid. Even though El Real itself is said to be ready to sell the 25-year-old player.
Reasons for Milan Cheating for Asensio
AC Milan finally managed to bring in Junior Messias and Brahim Diaz. However, both were recruited on loan.
And now even though it is still quite a long time, Milan is reportedly already focused on shopping for new players next summer.
Milan’s target is also said to be the same, namely Marco Asensio. The report from Fichajes states that Milan will seek help from Diaz’s ‘agent’ to persuade Asensio to agree to a move to the San Siro next year.
Milan is said to want to borrow Asensio first, with a permanent purchase option. On the other hand, Madrid itself is said to want fresh money next season.
They are said to be selling Asensio for 35 million euros. The money will later be used as additional capital to recruit Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland, or both at once.

In addition, there is another gap that makes AC Milan feel they can bring Marco Asensio. Real Madrid is said to be ready to promote their academy player, Sergio Arribas.
This news was reported by Defensa Central. Arribas himself shined in the Castilla Madrid team.
If Marco Asensio doesn’t improve his performance, then Real Madrid could just let him go to AC Milan and replace him with Arribas.
