Calabria: ‘Milan don’t want excuses’

Davide Calabria felt it ‘was a foul’ on the Porto goal, but doesn’t want to seek ‘excuses’ for another Milan Champions League loss.

The Rossoneri were beaten 1-0 in Portugal by a Luis Diaz strike, but he was allowed to shoot undisturbed from the edge of the area because Medhi Taremi barged Ismael Bennacer over.

They were also decimated by injuries, suspensions and COVID-19 cases, although Calabria won’t stand for that narrative.

“I don’t like to look for excuses, because otherwise it seems like we don’t deserve to wear the Milan jersey. Some might be a bit off form, not playing for a while, which is to be expected,” Calabria told Sport Mediaset.

“It went badly, there’s no point crying over split milk, we have to prepare for the next match, remember we are doing well in Serie A and try to keep building.”

Calabria was asked about the controversy over the build-up to the FC Porto goal.

“It looked like a foul from there, I haven’t seen the replays, but VAR isn’t going well for us recently.”

They already saw their last-gasp defeat to Atletico Madrid decided by a penalty for handball, which should’ve been revoked, as the Spanish player handled first.

    Milan lacked humility. The Porto Coach was smart with his mind games. Milan lost their first two games and surprisingly went against Porto thinking they are favorites. Against a team that has participated in the champions league more than them in recent times. Let’s not even talk about how Pioli’s tactics were nullified. Porto had more hunger and played as if they needed the point more. I honestly want us to come last in this group like Inter did last year. We don’t want Europa football. Let’s play the Serie A with all our power and bring some silverware home while the boys grow. Milan will be the unstoppable team next year
