Anderlecht Sporting Director Herman van Holsebeeck has admitted his team will be up against when they face Milan on Wednesday.
The Belgian club host Massimiliano Allegri's side in the Champions League tomorrow, with the winner cementing themselves in second place with one matchday left.
But the 58-year-old has conceded that his side will face a tough test against the Rossoneri.
“We are ready for this match,” he told Tuttomercattoweb. “But we know it's going to be a difficult game.
“Milan will put us in difficulty because they are a strong team with great attacking strengths.
“Stephan El Shaarawy is a real talent – probably the best Milan have to offer at this time – so our defenders will have to work overtime to stop him.”
He also commented on the future of striker Dieumerci Mbokani, who has been linked with Fiorentina and Newcastle United.
“I do not know what the future holds for him,” he said. “But we will only part with him if a big offer is put on the table.”
