Sinisa Mihajlovic said Milan “will be ready physically, technically and tactically for the start of the season” after defeat to Lyon.
“We knew that they were further ahead in pre-season preparations compared to us and we also changed system,” said Coach Mihajlovic.
“It’s never pleasing to lose, but I can say I’m satisfied with the work we’ve done at this stage. We interpreted the game well, but we could’ve done better and we will do better.
“There are players who aren’t yet in the right shape, but we tried to replicate some of the things we tried out in training.
“Milan will be ready physically, technically and tactically for the start of the season. The players who have yet to arrive, like Carlos Bacca, Luiz Adriano, Jeremy Menez and Cristian Zapata, can make the difference.”
Man of the match for the Rossoneri was 18-year-old David Calabria at right-back.
“Calabria did very well and, if he doesn’t get big-headed and I doubt he will, then will have a great future ahead of him.”
