AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli has admitted that he and his team-mates must learn from their mistakes after Sunday’s defeat to Roma.
The Rossoneri fell to their fifth defeat of the season in just the ninth round as Nicolo Zaniolo punished a bad giveaway by Davide Calabria to score the decisive second goal in Roma’s 2-1 win.
Milan struggled to hang on to the ball and were often wasteful in possession, particularly in the closing stages, and they now find themselves in 13th place and in need of a miracle to get a top four finish.
Romagnoli was interviewed by Sky Italia after the defeat and admitted that fatal errors cost his team again.
“It is a complicated moment with so many mistakes made in other matches as well,” he said, via MilanNews.it.
“We are a young team that has already given away too much. We have to work and come back better on Thursday.
“We have always tried to play but we have made fatal mistakes. This is not enough, we must give something more. All of us.
“We must try to play well against all the teams. We must grow and improve, the road is long and hard, but there are many games left.
“We want to play to win, unfortunately this does not happen for a number of reasons. We want to bring Milan as high as possible. We must work and try to raise the team up.”
