Fabio Borini maintains the sort of ugly scenes between Milan teammates Franck Kessie and Lucas Biglia “happen constantly and are sorted out in the dressing room.”
The pair had to be physically separated by several teammates after Kessie tried to attack Biglia following a substitution in the 3-2 defeat to Inter.
“These things can happen and they do happen constantly,” assured Borini on Sky Sport Italia.
“There are differing ideas, different languages and tensions, especially in a derby situation. They are sorted out in the dressing room, as it was this time too. The only difference was the row happened in front of television cameras, but arguments happen all the time.
“It is a united group that wants to achieve the same objective and is working in the same direction. If someone is pushing the other way, we won’t get anywhere.
“Obviously, players like myself and Patrick Cutrone want to play all the time and it’s not easy to enter with the same determination as we’d have from the start. On the other hand, sometimes it’s better to just give us minimal instructions and let us go, because we’ve been watching the game from the touchline and can see what needs to be done.”
Milan visit Sampdoria on Saturday evening in a showdown for European ambitions.
“Sampdoria are not an easy team to face, as they are in great shape and have strong players like Fabio Quagliarella. We’ve got to be wary, because we’ve slipped up many times against them. We must match their desire to win.”
