Simon Kjaer explains that ‘football is a game of errors’ and Milan made far too many of them in a 4-3 loss to Fiorentina.

The Rossoneri had not leaked four goals in a single Serie A game since their 4-2 Milan Derby defeat to Inter in February 2020.

Some of them were utterly avoidable, for instance after Ciprian Tatarusanu fumbled a corner and Theo Hernandez was caught in possession.

Serie A | Fiorentina 4-3 Milan: Rossoneri unbeaten record over

“Football is a game of errors,” Kjaer told Sky Sport Italia.

“Tonight we conceded four, the first time this season, and obviously that hurts for a centre-back like me.

“We need to learn from this, work hard and use it as fuel. We have another big game coming up and we must keep going forward.”

What did Stefano Pioli say in the locker room after the 4-3 defeat at the Stadio Franchi?

“Of course the coach was severe. All the things he said were important, things we need to learn from. We conceded four goals this evening and obviously have to improve. We also had the chances to score five or six, but conceding four is too much.”

Kjaer seems so settled at Milan, he was asked if he occasionally thinks back and reflects on his failed spells in Serie A with Roma and Atalanta.

“I tried to join Milan many times in my career, and after an unhappy period with Atalanta when the coach chose other players more suited to his tactics, there was this opportunity.

“I look back at my career occasionally, but I am still playing and enjoying myself. I will look back when I’ve finished.”

5 thought on “Kjaer: ‘Milan made too many errors’”
  1. Why Milan players always move towards our box when coming under pressure? In the last two games alone, we saw Kessie suiciding his way to give Hakan penalty and last night Theo, why not just clear the damn ball? These guys arent Maldini and Nesta..

  2. Clown errors on our part…. Tataru messed up the first goal. Theo messed up on the last goal. Take those two away and we win 3-2; Can’t make mistakes like that and expect to win. Even against Liverpool we only conceded 3… Fiore ain’t ‘Pool. Just saying…

  3. The saddest part was seeing Tata laughing and smiling around after the game. That guy doesn’t give any assurance and it looked like he didn’t know he cost us too much with his poor saving. Can’t remember him making any great save. Every ball that went into the net scored

  4. Finally, Milan are shown up with a defeat- they are in a false position and have been lucky in many respects to be where they are as some recent performances were not great but still came away with a win. Need a decent front man or two as to avoid last seasons disastrous loss of form. They should still be top 4 but are not good enough to win the league (yet).
