Maran: 'Cagliari must react'

Rolando Maran felt Cagliari let their heads drop after Milan took the lead with an own goal and “must learn to be strong even through difficulties.”

The Sardinians had their chances at San Siro, but when Alessio Cragno punched a Suso cross and it ricocheted in off Luca Ceppitelli, the floodgates opened.

“When you come to San Siro against Milan, you need to be consistent throughout the performance,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia after a 3-0 defeat.

“The own goal did affect us, but we must also be ready to get back on our feet after a setback. We must e stronger, work on the positive aspects and stay in the game.

“We made changes trying to be more solid, to make the most of our strengths. This team has gone through difficulties and is finding itself again, but we need to be more consistent.

“Unfortunately, we’re not very lucky at the moment and some incidents didn’t go our way again, such as the own goal or hitting the bar. We must learn to be strong even through these difficulties.”
