Former Lazio forward Bruno Giordano discussed the Biancocelesti’s upcoming Serie A clash against AC Milan and Spanish midfielder Luis Alberto in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster TMW Radio earlier today.

There are so many absences for Milan, if you don’t have a quality squad you can’t make up for it. It can happen once, but not for many games in a row. The most important absence will be that of Kessie, who has an important role in front of the defense.

But the Rossoneri never give up, they’re living a beautiful story. Lazio, on the other hand, alternate between good and bad performances. Perhaps the turning point came with Napoli. If Milan win, the value is double, it would be a great injection of confidence for the players before the break.

The Italian then spoke about the situation surrounding Luis Alberto, who has been linked with moves away from the Italian capital.

I imagine there’s requests for him but I hope he can stay at Lazio because you can feel his absence when he’s not playing.
