SulleyÂ MuntariÂ has admitted that AC Milanâ€™s next two games are vital if they are to qualify for theÂ EuropaÂ League.
TheÂ RossoneriÂ are currently seventh in the table having won five straight games under new Coach ClarenceÂ Seedorf.
But the Ghanaian midfielder has insisted that the team are now focused on doing well against Roma this Friday, and Inter a week Sunday.
â€œThe whole squad is doing well and we hope to continue this run until the end of the season,â€ he told Milan Channel.
â€œThese next two games are going to be difficult, but we canâ€™t get ahead of ourselves â€“ we must focus first on Roma.
â€œOnly after that game can we think about the derby.
â€œWeâ€™ll go to theÂ OlimpicoÂ and do what Mr.Â SeedorfÂ tells us.
â€œThankfully, everything is going well for us at the moment. Weâ€™re going match by match.â€
MuntariÂ then commented on Stephan ElÂ Shaarawyâ€™sÂ return to training after four months out.
â€œEveryone knows he is a great player. Weâ€™re all sorry that he has been out for so long, but thatâ€™s part of life.
â€œHopefully this will make him grow as a person and a player. Heâ€™s always the first to arrive and the last to leaveÂ Milanello, so Iâ€™m sure heâ€™ll do well.â€
