AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella says he was proud of his squad and the players should be proud to after a 2-2 draw against heated rivals Inter Milan.
Ivan Perisic scored a late injury time goal to put Inter on level, after Suso scored two goals to put the Rossoneri ahead in the Milan Derby.
Although, the late strike didn’t bother AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as the Italian said he was proud by how far his team has come, given that Inter celebrated a draw as if they had won.
“Seeing the opposition celebrate a 95th-minute equaliser [Perisic scored in the 92nd minute] as if they had won, considering this is a team constructed to win the Scudetto, is something to be proud of,” Montella said after the Milan Derby.
“We ask so much from our lads, so a dip in concentration can happen every now and then.”
“I was sorry for them, but we can go home and sleep soundly with a smile because we put in a great performance and showed great spirit.”
“Inter scored their goal on a set play at the 95th minute. It was almost the perfect evening and I try to see the glass half full.”
“In the second half we started well and were superior, but Inter equalised on two fortuitous chances. Maybe Inter didn’t deserve to lose either, but if Milan had won then nobody could have claimed we didn’t deserve it.”
“The president [Silvio Berlusconi] supported us after the match. He was a bit disappointed, just like us, but he’s satisfied about the Milan we are building. A young and Italian Milan.”
Milan are currently third in the Serie A, the Rosonneri are level n points with the second placed Roma but behind on goal difference.
