Sinisa Mihajlovic: Why I was angry at the end of the Udinese match


Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic says he was angry at the end of the Udinese match because his players lost concentration in the second half.

The Rossoneri raced to a 3-0 lead after the first 45 minutes but struggled to cope with the pace and tenacity of Udinese in the second half as the hosts pulled two goals back.

But Milan eventually managed to take all three points as they move up to fourth in the table.

"Perhaps it would have been better to go into the half-time interval a goal up rather than three," Mihajlovic told reporters.

"In those situations you can't stop playing and we should have tried to at least score one more goal. However, this is part of our growth process as a team.

"In the past few years, these players have been through some tough times and so we have to deal better with the anxiety and the fear. Udinese went into the match on the back of a series of defeats, but it was not easy and I congratulate Udinese on their performance.

"If they continue to play like that, they will have a good season. I was angry because we cannot go and complicate matters in a match that was seemingly won.

"It brought to mind the match against Liverpool in the Champions League, but I was luckier than Carlo Ancelotti this time. From time to time, it wouldn't be bad if we won 1-0.

"Balotelli has to keep this up and keep conducting himself like he is doing. He is on the receiving end of fouls from opponents because he is a strong player. The main thing is that he remains sharp and doesn't think about reacting."
