Mon 15 March 2021 | 9:16

The Rossoneri boss is frustrated with his side’s mistakes in their defeat against Napoli on Sunday.

AC Milan were defeated 1-0 in their match against

Napoli

on Sunday.

Matteo Politano

scored the only goal of the match for Gennaro Gattuso’s side as they reached fifth place on the table with 50 points. In a post-match interview,

Stefano Pioli

has spoken about Milan’s performance.

“The team was competitive. We were up against a quality opponent, it was a complicated first half, we made too many mistakes even without being under pressure. That was our limit this evening,”

Pioli told

Sky Sport Italia

.

“We had been doing better than Napoli at the start of the second half, but lost the ball and should’ve been far quicker to get back into position on the goal.

“We missed an opportunity, as it could’ve been an exceptional week, but a good game is not enough to beat a side like Napoli.

“Now we have to prepare for the next match in the Europa League and then get ready for Fiorentina.”

Inter have extended their lead at the top of the table to nine points. Antonio Conte’s side are on a six-match winning streak and their current form makes them the favorites to win the Scudetto.

“Inter have the momentum, they really started to step on the gas after their Champions League exclusion and it allowed them a full well to prepare for every game.

“We are not looking ahead or over our shoulders, we just stay focused on our path.”

Milan will play against

Manchester United

in the second leg of their Europa League round-of-16 tie on Thursday.
