Montella: 'Milan unlucky'

Vincenzo Montella felt Milan were “a little unlucky” after their 1-0 home defeat to Udinese. “There’s a bitter taste in the mouth.”

Stipe Perica’s volley in the final minutes took a decisive deflection off Ignazio Abate to wrong-foot Gianluigi Donnarumma.

“We are not happy with the result and it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth,” the Coach told Mediaset Premium.

“It was a difficult match, we were up against an Udinese side that sat very deep and we struggled to change tempo. We didn’t do enough, but to lose at the end was a real kick in the teeth. We were a little unlucky.

“It’s a shame, because when you don’t manage to win, it’s important not to lose. We have to do better. It was a decent start, but we didn’t create many chances. In this type of game, you need that moment of luck, just as Udinese did.”

Carlos Bacca had penalty appeals for a push in stoppages.

“It’s a pity, but these things can happen. What else can I say? We could’ve done better on the wings and didn’t take men on properly. We weren’t fast enough moving the ball around. There were some good things in the first half, it’s just a shame we didn’t score.”
