Despite AC Milan‘s recent 2-0 pre-season defeat to Liverpool, coach Vincenzo Montella was not discouraged by his team’s performance, insisting that he is confident with how the players are progressing.
The new Milan manager is still attempting to implement his new ideas within the Rossoneri squad, and he is optimistic about the forthcoming Serie A season.
Interestingly, Montella was also strangely happy with Milan’s loss to Liverpool, claiming that it might be good for the squad’s mental attitude.
“In terms of our progress we are bit further ahead of where I had expected us to be,” said Montella. “I liked the team’s approach and they are trying to implement the things that we have been working on in training.
“We know what we have let things slip slightly but I believe that a victory would have been worse in a strange way. A balance is needed for the team’s mentality.
“At the end of the day it is the results that matter but we are on the right path and we are looking ahead.”
