Montolivo: AC Milan must beat Bologna

The midfielder has underlined the importance of this weekend's Serie A encounter, and has stressed that he is happy to play wherever he is needed
Riccardo Montolivo has insisted that AC Milan desperately need to take all three points from this weekend's Serie A match against Bologna.

The Italy international realises that the Rossoblu will not be pushovers, though, and has singled out Alberto Gilardino as their main attacking threat.

"Bologna have good technical qualities and we'll have to be careful because they have quality in the middle and up front. Gilardino is back scoring for them, but we absolutely have to win," Montolivo told Milan Channel.

The midfielder then went on to say that he is prepared to play in whichever position the coach needs him.

"Playing in front of the defence? I like it and as I always say, I'll do anything for the team. If I play there on Sunday, I'll give everything I have.

"I'm very happy to be a part of the Milan family. When you play for the big teams, you always have that special motivation."

Montolivo has made 18 Serie A appearances for Milan so far this term, netting two goals in the process.
