AC Milan recorded another historically bad result last night as they lost to Lazio in San Siro for the first time in thirty years in Serie A.

The former Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid manager spoke about Rossonerri’s current situation to Radio Anch’io Sport.

“Milan are in trouble,” he started, according to Football Italia.

“The players aren’t of a great level, you can tell. They are playing with fear.”

The Italian manager didn’t hold back, pinpointing the weak spots in the current Milan squad.

“They don’t have any personality and they don’t perform according to their set value.

“Paqueta has quality, but he doesn’t show it. Leao made me nervous against Lazio. He needs to keep playing when Milan don’t have possession.

“Yesterday he played only when he had the ball at his feet. I repeat, I think the problems Milan are facing are in their heads.

“When you don’t have a lot of quality and your head is not working… The situation at the club might have an impact.”

In the end, Capello doubled down on his opinion that the team lacks leadership.

“I don’t see a leader, a captain, not only someone who wears the armband, but a player who can also help extend the ideas of the coach and create a collective,” concluded the Italian.
