Hans-Joachim Watzke and Franco Baresi spoke this Thursday, after the C1 draw.
Hans-Joachim Watzke (President of Borussia Dortmund, opponent of PSG, AC Milan and Newcastle in group F of the C1 ) : “It’s an extremely tough group, we’re not going to hide it, but hey, we take it. We know how to go further. We have to achieve something exceptional, but we hope for it. In 2012, for the group stage, we drew Real Madrid, Machester City and Ajax Amsterdam and we managed to get by. But it is very hard, no doubt. They are three top opponents, it will be a very tight group.” (at the microphone of Sky Germany)
Franco Baresi (honorary vice-president of AC Milan) : “We knew that being in the third hat, our task would be complicated, it certainly is, we could have had more luck, because it is a difficult group. The competition is going to be tough, but it’s also good for a club to play these kinds of matches. We must not forget what we have accomplished in the past two years, we must keep ambition and believe in it. It is not impossible that we win these matches (…) Milan is Milan and must not forget what it is and what it has accomplished in the past. We have players who have a lot of international experience“.
