AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti is
looking forward to a winning game for his team. He admits that
there is a lot of pressure from millions of spectators around
the world, not to win, but to play well, and continue the
tradition - the UEFA Champions League being the best football
game one can enjoy. Milan's captain Paolo Maldini will play his
eight Champions League final, if his knee injury permits it.
Ancelotti admits that for such an important game, Maldini's
possible absence could prove devastating for the Rossoneri.
Massimo Ambrosini, who missed the final of the UEFA Champions
League in Istanbul two years ago, is now looking ahead to giving
100% on the field on Wednesday. There is a lot of pressure on
Filippo Inzaghi for this game, as well.
Liverpool, despite the bookmakers'
predictions, are also ready for the final on the 23rd. Liverpool
FC captain Steven Gerrard is confident in his team, and claims
that Liverpool has nothing to fear when they meet Milan. In 2005
Liverpool recovered from 3-0 down against Milan to win the final
on penalties, and Gerrard is sure Liverpool will be on top
again, despite the strong play Milan had displayed throughout
the UEFA Champions League games.
