Massimo Ambrosini believes Milan “lack the quality” to win the Scudetto, but could get a Champions League place.
The Rossoneri beat the holders on Saturday, leading to talk they could mount an unlikely title challenge.
However, Vincenzo Montella’s side were thrashed 3-0 by Genoa last night, and one Diavolo legend says too much is expected.
“To compete with Juve and Roma, Milan lack the quality to win a championship,” Ambrosini told Sky.
“The Rossoneri aren’t set up to win, but it’s a team with structure and conviction, so they can have a better season than in recent years.
“It’ll take time and calm, this side can’t compete with Napoli and Juventus, but they can challenge for a place in Europe.
“The way they’re going now, they can challenge for the Champions League and it’s unfair to ask for more than that.”
