Roma manager dismisses ‘so-called crisis’ at Milan: “The performances aren’t different”

By Isak Möller -

Milan will face Roma away from home tomorrow evening, hoping to bounce back from what has been four games without a win. Two of them came in the league and they were both defeats, which isn’t good enough. 

The Rossoneri are still in second place, four points behind city rivals Inter and four points ahead of Juventus. The latter have a game in hand, though, which means that Stefano Pioli’s side need to start winning again to keep their sport.

It won’t be an easy game tomorrow evening, not only because of their form, but also because Roma are in fourth place. The Giallorossi have done really well and their manager, Paulo Fonseca, deserves a lot of praise for his work.

Having said that, they have only collected three points from the top six sides this season and that isn’t good enough. In his pre-match press conference, Fonseca dismissed the idea of there being a crisis at Milan, as cited by Football Italia.

“If you watched their defeat to Inter, you’ll know they played well, created chances and the performances aren’t different, just the results.

“I don’t believe in this so-called crisis at Milan. What I saw is a strong and aggressive side that creates scoring opportunities. They aren’t getting the results they hoped for at the moment, but we’re up against a team that wants to win,” he stated.
