Sinisa Mihajlovic spoke to the press following Milan’s disappointing 1-1 draw against Udinese.
“We are sorry not to have come away with the 3 points because we had a great chance to close the gap on the teames above us in the table, however I want to congratulate my players. We just weren’t quite sharp enough and were lacking a bit of luck. The result was fortunate, but the performance wasn’t and was there from the team. We cannot get down for the result and we have to keep this going.”
The Serbian then talked about Boateng and Balotelli, who played a combined 73 minutes, with the latter playing the entire second half.
“Boateng and Balotelli have improved in terms of their fitness.”
“We are the side that creates the most, but we don’t capitalise on those chances. This is an area we need to improve upon. But playing like we have been doing, and being more clinical in front of goal, we can improve our position in the table.”
Bertolacci stuck the crossbar late into the second half, with the ball coming down to hit the Udinese goalkeeper on the back. Only for Karnezis to save on the line.
“Bertolacci’s effort wasn’t a goal not given, but a chance missed.”
“We have not had luck on our side this season in the league. The only match we drew but we deserved to lose was versus Atalanta, but in the others we deserved other results. We have been doing well in this second part of the season, we could have had more points, but football is also great because of this. Let’s hope we have a bit more luck in the next matches, because we have also been playing well.”
“When you play well and don’t win it’s disappointing and a shame.”
