Loyalty? Mannone backing AC Milan to beat Arsenal

Reading goalkeeper Vito Mannone is backing AC Milan to beat Europa League opponents Arsenal tonight.

Despite his extensive Arsenal background, Mannone says Milan holds a special place in his heart.

He told TMW: "Arsenal has fulfilled my dreams. At a work level it has been an important stage, but my heart is not controlled.

"My father took me to San Siro when I was a child. I say Milan. And as an Italian and Milan player I'm confident because we play at San Siro. Milan can take the lead. And then I understand that Arsenal has some fears to play in Milan. It will be an interesting match.

"But beware: if Arsenal is on their game it can be a problem."
