Benevento coach Pippo Inzaghi admits AC Milan return emotional

Benevento coach Pippo Inzaghi admits facing AC Milan at San Siro will be emotional.

Inzaghi returns to his old club on Sunday.

“This feels a bit like the game against Lazio, when I was up against my brother Simone," confessed Inzaghi in his press conference.

“It was a tough experience on a human level, but also a very emotional one, difficult to describe. Everyone knows how much I love Milan and I think that sentiment is mutual with the Rossoneri fans. As we say in these situations, we'll be rivals for 90 minutes and after that I can get back to being the Number One Milan Fan.

“I told the players to relish these opportunities, because a year ago we were in Serie B and now we're facing the Serie A leaders, eager to achieve another coup after taking points off Lazio and Juventus."
