Semplici: 'Donnarumma rescued Milan'

Leonardo Semplici maintains SPAL “deserved a point and Gianluigi Donnarumma rescued the result for Milan at the end.”

The Spallini had taken the lead through Andrea Petagna, but were overturned by Samu Castillejo and Gonzalo Higuain goals for 2-1.

“We played the game we needed to. Milan were in good shape and their strikers, including Suso, would shift the balance to cause us problems,” the Coach told DAZN.

“In the second half, we really deserved a point and Gianluigi Donnarumma rescued the result for Milan at the end.

“It’s disappointing, because not every team comes to San Siro and plays with this degree of confidence, so leaving with a defeat inevitably creates regrets.

“We had found a tactical way to shut down Suso, whereas with 3-5-2 we had struggled with our positioning. Now we go into 2019 and must secure our place in Serie A, because we’ve proved we are not just passing through.”
