The Dutchman has developed into an important first-team member at San Siro, and has underlined the importance of Saturday's encounter against the Turin outfitAC Milan midfielder Urby Emanuelson realises that Saturday evening's Serie A game at home against Juventus will be a complicated match for the Rossoneri.
The San Siro outfit currently sit top of the Serie A table with a one-point lead over their rivals, who have one game in hand, but the Bianconeri came out victorious in their previous two encounters in the 2011-12 campaign.

"[Andrea] Pirlo will be crucial for Juventus. He is one of the best players with whom I have played in my career."
Emanuelson scored his first goal for Milan in last week's 3-1 Serie A win over over Cesena, and will be looking to add to his tally on Saturday at San Siro. The match kicks off at 20.45CET.
