AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella has claimed that star striker Carlos Bacca was relaxed during his goal drought.
The Colombian international scored his first goal in three months as he earned three important points for the Rossoneri against Cagliari.
Bacca scored in the 88th minute, breaking the deadlock and giving Milan a much deserved win.
Montella said that Bacca always mantained his calm and was focused on ending the drought.
“He has always been relaxed and I’m happy that he got the goal,” Montella said.
“I used to be a striker, so I know how important a goal is. Now I am waiting for M’Baye Niang to get a goal because he is improving mentally.”
“We started the game well but in the second half we lost some intensity and ran a few risks at the end when we moved to 4-2-4.”
“But I am satisfied with this win and how we achieved it. The foundations are there, we just need to get more shots on target and attack the opposition defence a bit more in future.”
Suso was also relieved that the team kept up with rivals after Roma, Napoli, Inter and Atlanta all won their respective games.
“We knew that all the other teams had won this weekend, so it was a very, very important result for us,” he said.
“It is early to talk about the Champions League, we have to keep focusing on one game at a time and reaching Europe.”
“It was difficult. Cagliari fought hard and defended very well, but we managed to break them down in the end.”
