 rescue a point against 10-man 


on Saturday as the Rossoneri's fading Serie A title hopes suffered another major blow.

"We didn't deserve to win this game, even though we could have when Kessie hit the woodwork,"

Pioli told Milan TV


"We weren't precise enough in our play or our choices. We had the chance to make better choices and be more precise, but we needed to play with more precision and tempo.

"There is very little I'm happy with, to be honest. The performance should have been different because the conditions were right to play with more intensity, generosity and quality. Having failed to do so must make us disappointed and angry."

A point does little for the Rossoneri's title hopes, as it left the second-placed side five points adrift of city rivals


at the top of the Serie A table, having played two more games.

"We must focus immediately on the next match,"

Pioli said.

 "There are nine left and we're yet to reach our objective. We knew it wouldn't be easy to reach it, so now we need to show we can bounce back well."
