The defeat against Sassuolo on Sunday must not spark the hunt for a culprit or a scapegoat but rather there must be a collective responsibility, a report claims.
MilanNews writes how Stefano Pioli’s side are a team in constant evolution and growth, far from being a finished project. While foundations are there and they are solid the challenging part is getting the team to perform to their maximum – or close to it – every few days for an entire season.
Against Sassuolo they showed the wrong attitude but even in the horror show it must be noted that the start was good as Milan dominated, created several opportunities created and score through Romagnoli. Tiemoue Bakayoko’s mistake led to Scamacca’s equaliser, poor marking from a corner made it 2-1 and then a double error from Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli saw Berardi make it 3-1.
The team managed to enter the Sassuolo box easily but without ever showing the right malice in the decisive moment but focusing on individuals rather than on the collective could be dangerous.
The mistakes of certain players were there just as there were against Fiorentina, but this time the team did not ever look in the game after going behind, with no excuse like physical condition to hide behind having won against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano in midweek.
The most important thing now is the response, and the right attitude must be on display against Genoa with Shevchenko no doubt itching to get one over on his old club and begin building his reputation as a coach in Italy.
