Carlos Bacca felt Milan had “the right attitude, but must improve the quality” after beating Empoli 2-1.
The Colombian broke his Serie A duck with the team’s first shot on target this season, while Luiz Adriano secured the winner.
“Milan faced this game with the right attitude, but we must improve the quality of our football,” Bacca told Mediaset Premium Sport.
“Empoli put in a great performance and really pressured us on the ball, but fortunately we were able to win.”
Mario Balotelli was unable to make his debut, as Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic ran out of substitutions. Does Bacca appreciate the extra competition?
“There’s healthy competition in attack and the important thing is that it benefits Milan. Mario has been here for a few days and has a lot of work to do, then Mihajlovic will decide whether to play with two or three strikers.”
The Rossoneri’s next match after the break for international duty will be the Milan Derby against arch-rivals Inter.
