Alessandro Costacurta believes Milan must “work on the mentality” after their defeat to Lazio.
Vincenzo Montella’s side were beaten 4-1 by the Biancocelesti at the weekend, and face Austria Vienna tonight in the Europa League.
“For Milan this is a rebound, a restart,” Costacurta told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“It’s the road to start to be that team again, at the top of Mount Olympus, something which was normal for so many years.
“It’s even better to restart here, and the Europa League is the best stage to shake off Lazio.
“When Montella talks about outside distractions, he’s right. On a technical level I see errors which can be fixed.
“The most serious things was the lack of reaction after the goals. I like Montella, because he plays attacking football. Now he’ll go to a three-man defence but I don’t think that’s the key.
“It’ll take more attention from the squad and to the details, he has to work on the mentality.
“Slaps taken strongly and immediately are welcome, that’s how the players will get over themselves and focus on real things.”
