Milan boss Stefano Pioli after loss to Monza: “We made too many mistakes”

Milan boss Stefano Pioli has criticised the side’s mistakes after the club’s 4-2 loss to Monza away from home in Serie A.

Monza’s win over the Rossoneri was their first ever triumph over Milan. It was essentially Silvio Berlusconi’s new club beating his old club and it was Lorenzo Colombo, a Milan loanee score a late goal and Daniel Maldini also assisted one stoppage time goal. 

Milan had Luka Jovic sent off when Monza were 2-0 up by Olivier Giroud and Christian Pulisic made it 2-2 before Warren Bondo and Colombo scored late goals to seal the win for Monza.

Pioli spoke to DAZN (via TMW) after the game and rued the mistakes made in the game by his players. He said: “We made some mistakes that jeopardized the match, the first half hour was done as we should have. We had the qualities to take it back, clearly the red card created difficulties for us, after the 2-2 we had to be more lucid, the team also tried to win it at that moment. But it was an evening in which we made too many mistakes. The match changed for the worse for us from the interruption to the expulsion, we had to be more careful and effective in all those episodes. It was a defeat that hurts bad for how it arrived.”

The win denied Milan from going to second in the table. Juventus’ draw against Verona made sure that they were only one point ahead of Milan, but the Rossoneri have missed a huge chance to go second.
