AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli has bemoaned the key errors his side made during Sunday night’s 2-1 defeat to Roma.
The Rossoneri lost their fifth game of the season at the Stadio Olimpico as Nicolo Zaniolo punished a stray pass from substitute Davide Calabria to snatch all three points for the hosts.
Edin Dzeko had been left unmarked for Roma’s opener in what was a baffling bit of defending, and Theo Hernandez’s equaliser would ultimately not be enough to steal an underserved point following another error-ridden performance for Milan.
Romagnoli was interviewed by SportMediaset after the defeat against the Giallorossi, and admitted the age is no excuse for the mistakes his team-mates are making.
“These are errors that come due to lack of attention. Roma goals were born from our mistakes,” he said (via MilanNews.it).
“We need to improve, it is true that we are young, but we need to improve. Mistakes are part of growth, but we need to improve.
“Fears must not exist. We know that the season is long and we need to get better. We must work and immediately think about the next game.”
