Inzaghi: ‘Milan lack confidence’

Pippo Inzaghi believes Milan’s poor start to 2015 “damaged our confidence” after another defeat to Atalanta.

“We just have to roll our sleeves up and work. There’s nothing else we can do at this moment. We have the determination, but that’s not enough anymore and we need to wake up.

“We take our share of the responsibility, but the only medicine for these issues is work,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Pippo Inzaghi believes Milan’s poor start to 2015 “damaged our confidence” after another defeat to Atalanta.

“We just have to roll our sleeves up and work. There’s nothing else we can do at this moment. We have the determination, but that’s not enough anymore and we need to wake up.

“We take our share of the responsibility, but the only medicine for these issues is work,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Jeremy Menez gave the ball away in today’s 1-0 home loss to Atalanta when attempting a backheel flick in midfield.

“It’s above all a shame that we gave away the ball for the goal. We created chances, albeit not enough and we need to do so much better for a team of our quality.”

Milan had been charging up the standings at the end of 2014, but since the turn of the year have just one point from three rounds against minnows Sassuolo, Torino and Atalanta.

“Our style of football that we had early in the season isn’t coming out on to the field anymore and the team is feeling the tension,” confessed Inzaghi.

“Pazzini had a fever this week and I didn’t really intend to play him for longer than 15-20 minutes, but the course of the game forced me to change that plan.

“Let’s not forget this team played on a par with Roma and Napoli, so cannot suddenly lose all their talent.

“On Tuesday we played well against Sassuolo in the Coppa Italia, which is an important tournament for us.

“We need to get back to doing what we did before the Christmas break. Maybe the defeat to Sassuolo at the start of 2015 damaged our confidence. We might not be able to play the best football in these circumstances, but we must try to play better than this.

“We should be tighter and more compact. Perhaps the excessive desire to win made us lose our bearings and get stretched out. We’ll analyse the game and try to improve. It’s the only thing we can do at this moment.”
