Mati Fernandez insists AC Milan are only focusing on their own results in the race for European football.
The Rossoneri sit a point behind rivals Inter who currently occupy the final Europa League spot – if Coppa Italia finalists Lazio and Juventus are already in Europe.
A home game against struggling Palermo precedes a crucial Easter-weekend derby clash, and Fernandez claims Milan are in control of their own destiny.
“We can only look at ourselves, then if our rivals lose so much the better,” Fernandez told Premium Sport.
“Every match is difficult, every match is worth three points and we have to prepare in the best way for each one.
“The most important team is Milan, we want to win every game and then we’ll see if the other teams drop points.
“In Pescara we didn’t get the result we wanted, but we have to keep working to improve. We were slow in moving the ball, and I don’t know why.
“We’re still up there in the table though, and we can get where we want to go.”
