Filippo Inzaghi on Napoli, Marco van Ginkel and injuries


Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi says his players are determined to get back on winning terms after last week's disappointing defeat against Genoa.

The Rossoneri host Napoli in what will certainly be the highlight match in the Serie A this weekend as both teams continue their chase for a top three finish in the domestic league.

"I hope to see a nice game of football," Inzaghi said.

"We know them [Napoli], they are quality in the offensive department. Last season Milan played a top game but lost because of [Gonzalo] Higuain's great strike.

"They have the league's best forward line but we tried to prepare the game in the best possible way.

"We have to bounce back from the Genoa defeat, a game which was not as bad as many described it."

Asked to comment on Sulley Muntari's challenge on Marco van Ginkel in training, Inzaghi added: "It's a shame.

"It was a hard tackle but not intentional, the first one to apologise for what happened was Sulley [Muntari]. He trains with intensity and passion, if not, it would be more difficult to win matches.

"It wasn't a 'killer' tackle, else I would have taken action. Sulley is a very nice kid, he was really sorry. Of course we lose a player who would have started [tomorrow], who was enjoying a nice moment of form.

"[But] I have many solutions [in midfield]. Today [in training] we will see how we can replace him."

Meanwhile, Inzaghi confirms three players will be back after the Christmas break.

"[Alex, Ignazio Abate and Mattia De Sciglio] will be back after the Christmas holidays.

"[Philippe] Mexes and [Adil] Rami are doing well and we also have [Cristian] Zaccardo and [Michelangelo] Albertazzi. I don't look at who is absent because it's not fair to those who are giving their best on the pitch."
