AC Milan defender Francesco Acerbi is confident that his side can secure a top three finish, despite the loss of high-profile players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Alessandro Nesta this summer.
The 24-year-old made his first appearance for the Rossoneri since his summer move from Chievo in their 3-1 win over Bologna, and is hoping his team can build on that result to have a positive season.
"We are Milan, and when you play in a club like this, you must play to win or finish in second or third position," the former Chievo defender told Sky Italia.
"We are a new group, and we are growing day by day. It is difficult to substitute Nesta and Thiago Silva, but I’m working hard to reach a good level."
Milan host Atalanta on Saturday as they look to build on their last victory and claim their first three points at home this season.
