Galliani explains Milan retreat

Adriano Galliani has revealed that he is behind the decision to send Milan’s players into a training retreat.

The first team squad will be confined to their Milanello base this week after the 3-2 loss at Lazio saw them sucked into the relegation zone.

“I assume the responsibility for this action,” the Vice-President noted. “I do not know whether this measure will help.

“However, in the meantime, all of the players will be able to think about what is happening right now.”

The Diavolo, who face Malaga in the Champions League this week, have collected just seven points from the 24 on offer so far this season.

The reverse at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday was their fifth from eight Serie A games so far.

Milan will entertain Genoa next weekend.
