Calhanoglu insists AC Milan players desperate to get back

AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu insists the players are desperate to get the club back amongst the elite.

Calhanoglu is eager for Serie A to resume.

“Now I'm less afraid, but I wasn't even afraid when the coronavirus first came about," Calhanoglu told Sky Sport Italia.

“If you have to catch it, you catch it. I hope we can start playing again because football is our life.

“Training like this isn't the best. I miss group training, I miss my teammates, my friends.

“We're following the news every day, but it always changes from week to week so mentally it's difficult for us.

“We still want to reach the Europa League and win the Coppa Italia. We want to do well in both competitions."
