According to the team’s manager, the club was not playing its best in today’s 1-1 draw in the Italian Lega Serie A.

Samu Castillejo gave AC Milan a 1-0 advantage in today’s Italian Lega Serie A. But Bruno Alves scored with just three minutes left on the clock to give Parma a 1-1 draw.

And Rossoneri manager Gennaro Gattuso has admitted he expects more from his club.

“Our first half was too sluggish, Parma closed the gaps and it wasn’t a great performance,” the coach was quoted by Football Italia.

“We were lucky to take the lead and then Parma made the most of that free kick with a wonderful goal. They deserved the point.”

He added: “Parma have specific characteristics, defend with five men and we knew how they played. It was hot for both teams, but they had more determination than us at times.”

“We were naïve, for example giving away the free kick. Maybe I am not a good enough Coach yet to let the players realize the importance of these small details,” he continued.

“I am objective and like to say things how they are. I expected to come here and do more, albeit knowing the difficulties Parma could cause us.”

“We were unlucky on what would’ve been our second goal, as the offside trap was very tight. That’s how it goes,” Gattuso concluded.

Milan is currently in the fourth position of the Italian Lega Serie A with 56 points, five behind third-place Internazionale Milan.

There are five matches left for the Rossoneri in the 2018-2019 season: against Torino, Bologna, Fiorentina, Frosinone, and SPAL.
