Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi was furious after seeing his side lose 2-1 away at Udinese.
The Italian urged his side to take all three points in Friday's press conference but his players failed to answer the call as they were second best in all departments against Andrea Stramaccioni's determined men.
"Today we played a very bad game, I'm very angry with the attitude of the squad," Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italy.
"We apologise to the fans and to the president, luckily we're back in action on Wednesday.
"The coach is always the first to blame when a team plays like this. We have to close the season out in a positive way. We came here after nine very good games so I would have never expected such a performance today.
"We were lucky to end the first half goalless. My only explanation [for such a dull performance] is that maybe the light went off after the derby [against Internazionale].
"Today we failed in the approach, credit to Udinese but let's now focus on Wednesday's game [against Genoa].
"Today I'm bitterly disappointed, it's the only game of the season where at the end I'm disappointed.
"On Wednesday only those [players] who deserve to wear the Milan jersey will start, we're Milan and we cannot afford to perform the way we did today."
