AC Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari is targeting a win over Juventus as the perfect boost as his side chase second place in the Serie A.
The Ghanaian looked to have given AC Milan a 2-0 lead against Juve in their clash last February but, despite the ball being some way over the line, the officials neglected to give a goal before the encounter finished 1-1.
While Muntari has played down the importance of the incident, he said he would relish a legitimate strike and a win against the champions.
“I’d certainly like to score against Juventus,” the 28-year-old said.
“I haven’t scored in the league this year, but against Juventus it would also be fine if one of my team-mates hit the net. Most of all, it is important to win.
“That memory (of the ‘ghost goal’) does not bother me.
“Some things are part of football. If something bothers you, it means you don’t want to go forward.
“Though that goal was legitimate, it was not essential. It’s true, we were ahead on the scoreboard, but Juventus was stronger and deserved the Scudetto last year too.”
Meanwhile, striker Giampaolo Pazzini believes securing at least second spot this season should be a target for a side with the history and reputation of AC Milan.
“No one organization is so pervasive and no-one has a coat of arms comparable to Milan,” the 28-year-old Italian told Forza Milan.
“This is the most successful club in the world and those lucky enough to play with it does not take long to realise it.”
