Alessio Romagnoli has insisted that he and his AC Milan team-mates are determined to ‘turn the tide’ in light of recent results.
The Rossoneri have lost seven of their first 12 games to start the season, amassing just 13 points and scoring only 11 times, and Stefano Pioli’s arrival at the club as the new head coach has not yielded a turnaround in results.
Club captain Romagnoli netted Italy’s 9-1 Euro 2020 qualifier win over Armenia on Sunday, scoring the sixth goal during a convincing rout which made it a perfect 10 wins from 10 for Roberto Mancini’s side in their qualifying group.
Romagnoli caused a stir when he spoke to the microphones of Rai Sport after the game, claiming that Milan’s results have negatively affected his morale as a player.
Now though, the 24-year-old has given an interview to SportMediaset, previewing Saturday’s clash against Napoli.
“We hope to turn the tide as soon as possible,” he said.
“We are coming from a difficult period. We are ready for Napoli and we are looking to leave everything we’ve got on the pitch.”
