Milan coach Vincenzo Montella discussed the 2-2 draw with Torino post-match at the Grande Torino.
Montella was interviewed by Premium Sport after Milan’s draw with Torino:
On the match:
“In the first half we kept the opponent in their own half. We did just enough, but sadly that’s not enough. We have to give something more. The team still deserved the goal at the end of the first half. In the second half we entered the field with another mindset. In terms of quality of play we were always in the game, but we conceded two dirty goals, and Torino were good. After the draw the game was open, the final was vibrant.”
On what was said to the players at half time:
“The things said in the locker room you can not say publicly. I think the team has learned another little lesson that will serve for the rest. We must also grow in the interpretation of the race.”
On the ladder:
“I have not looked at the standings. After twenty games each team has the points they deserve.”
Back to the game:
“In the first half Torino were compact, and accelerated in the second half to create a number of openings. We were soft and did just enough, they had the better temperament. In the end the two teams are split evenly, both of us wanted to win the game.”
“Usually I give him compliments, but after this game its unlikely.”
The Rossoneri will be without starters Manuel Locatelli and Alessio Romagnoli (suspension) next Saturday when they host Napoli at Stadio San Siro.
