AC Milan defender Bonera: We'll be stronger for break

AC Milan defender Daniele Bonera feels the players will be refreshed from their free week.

Last week's Serie A games were postponed due to the death of Piermario Morosini, the decision coming just 30 minutes before the Rossoneri were set to kick off against Genoa.

"Now quite a few players are starting to come back from injury. We are ready for the next games," he told

"From the start of the season we realised something had changed at Juventus, as Antonio Conte has given them the grit they had lost in recent years. They were coming off difficult campaigns and started from scratch.

"But we will not forget what Milan have done over the past two years. If we look at the number of points we have notched up in two seasons, it's exceptional.

"No games are easy and we proved that with our home defeat to Fiorentina. The break has allowed many of our players to catch a breath and do personalised work in training, which we hadn't been able to do in the past month with three games a week.

"We have everything that is needed for these final six matches to prove decisive in our favour."
