Francesco Guidolin has double regrets, as Udinese lost their unbeaten home record and Mauricio Isla “will be out for a while.”
The Friulani hadn’t tasted defeat on their own turf in Serie A since Parma’s 2-0 result here in April, but were beaten 2-1 this evening by Milan.
“Of course we have regrets, especially when it comes to Isla, because he will be out for a while,” said the Coach.
Isla fell awkwardly with Massimo Ambrosini landing on him, which turned his knee in a way that suggests ligament damage.
Antonio Di Natale hobbled off during the second half, but “there shouldn’t be anything particularly serious for him.
“We conceded two goals on the counter-attack. If we had been more prudent in a few occasions, then Milan would’ve struggled a lot.
“We’ve got to mature, because the 1-1 was a good result, even if we deserved more. Instead of playing from a position of power, we poured forward to get things back on track and Milan punished us.
“Don’t forget the Rossoneri can punish you at any moment. We’ve got to grow up and grow up fast.”
