“Football is a beautiful game because after one setback, you immediately have the opportunity to make up for it,” the midfielder told Roma TV.
The Giallorossi had taken the lead in their Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk, but were beaten 2-1 after a dismal second half.
“Tonight’s game is important and a victory would be fundamental. Milan are in good shape and finding their balance, but we need to win.
“The Coach told us that the result is a consequence of our performance. We saw that on Wednesday against Shakhtar Donetsk, as having a good start is not enough, you need to keep that going for the whole match and stick together in difficult moments.
“We have to improve in that sense, especially the younger players like me.”
