Alessio Romagnoli was glad Milan ‘reacted’ to a bad start against Juventus and brought home a point. ‘We need to remain concentrated, there’s a long way to go.’
The Bianconeri had taken the lead just four minutes in through a classic Alvaro Morata counter-attack, but after dominating the first half, they fell away and Ante Rebic nodded in the equaliser from a corner.
Pierre Kalulu could even have won it for the visitors at the death, but was denied by Wojciech Szczesny’s reaction save.
“We did not start well, but we reacted and put in a good performance. Now we move onto the next match,” Romagnoli told DAZN.
Milan had also fought back from a bad start against Liverpool in the Champions League midweek, eventually capitulating 3-2.
“We know that we could’ve done better at Anfield, especially when we went a goal up. We had another comeback today and did well to get the game on track.”
This was a rare start for Romagnoli, who is after all still the Milan captain, but after Simon Kjaer’s injury he could feature more.
“As I’ve always said, I try to give my best. The coach makes his decisions, all I can do is try to make it difficult for him to pick the starting XI.
“This is certainly one of the best Milan squads since I’ve been here, but we need to remain concentrated, there’s a long way to go.”
