Alessio Romagnoli, just like the rest of his teammates, didn’t have the best of outings last night as Spezia comfortably beat Milan 2-0. The captain was brutally honest about the performance after the game.
The Rossoneri could have used the win to boost their confidence ahead of the derby next weekend. Instead, they could find themselves in second place and that makes the clash against Inter even more important.
In his post-match interview, Stefano Pioli insisted that Milan didn’t underestimate Spezia. Romagnoli, on the other hand, stated that they did and hopes that they can bounce back straight away (see below with subtitles).
“We got the approach wrong, they did better than us. We lacked pressing and had poor build-up play. We clearly had the wrong approach and they deserved to win. We underestimated them and I hope we can put this defeat behind us immediately.”
The Rossoneri will face Red Star Belgrade mid-week in the Europa League and the derby is scheduled for Sunday afternoon. Two games that could indeed define the rest of the season for them.
