EGIDIO CALLONI TO MILAN CHANNEL: "ALWAYS RETURNING TO MILANELLO A THRILL"
MILANELLO - Former Milan striker Egidio Calloni was at Milanello today and spoke to Milan Channel: "When it comes to Milanello there is always emotion. Pazzini is an important player, he will definitely be so again this year. I think that Conte's visit as Italy coach may have been a boost to the possible internationals such as Pazzini and El Shaarawy. I think this year after the departure of Balotelli, El Shaarawy will have more space and we will see the best of El Shaarawy. Niang is young player, he has great physical power and always gets past the man. It could be the wing positions that serve Milan. Menez already known in the Italian league, he can play any role. For me he is number 10, a support-striker, then it all depends on how the coach plays. I am a fan now and a fan wants to see his team win."
