Europa League: Kadiri Mohammed confident of victory over AC Milan
Ghana defender Abdul Kadiri Mohammed has expressed optimism that his Austria Wien side will beat Italian giants AC Milan when both teams clash in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday, 23 November 2017 despite playing away.
Speaking to Class Sports’ Kwame Dwomoh-Agyemang ahead of their game at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium in Italy, the former Ashgold defender said although it will be difficult to beat Milan at home, nothing was impossible in football.
“It is not often a Ghanaian player gets the opportunity to play against a team as big as AC Milan. It was tough when we played them at home, a game in which we lost but if you look at our away record, we have been able to pick four points from a possible six points. Milan is a very big team and there is no doubt about it but anything is possible in football. This is the attitude we would take to the San Siro and hopefully we would come back home with at least a point,” he said.
The 21-year-old defender is the only Ghanaian player in the Europa League this season and has featured 837 minutes all season in the Austrian Bundesliga, appearing in 13 games in the process.
He has played full time in all four group games against Milan, Rijeka and AEK Athens.
Austria Wien lie in third place, two points behind Greek side AEK Athens and four points behind leaders AC Milan.
