Vincenzo Montella Wants Concentration for Full 90 Minutes


AC Milan have been one of the much improved clubs in the Italian Serie A this season and they proved this fact by managing a comeback victory against Torino during the weekend.

Despite falling 2-0 down against a Torino team close to the bottom half of the table, Milan staged an incredible comeback.Belotti andBenassi gave Torino a 2-0 advantage after just 26 minutes with both goals coming in the space of five minutes. It clearly demonstrated a lack of concentration amongst the Milan ranks, but they were able to wake up following the setback.

An incredible second half resulted in the away team managing a comeback through Bertolacci and Bacca. Once again, the two goals scored by Milan were in an interval of five minutes suggesting that the home team were now at fault for not keeping up the concentration levels. Even though Milan were unable to claim a win at the end of the game, they were at least able to stay in touch with the likes of Napoli and Lazio.

It was extremely important that Milan did not fall behind the top three races, as the club hope to return to Champions League after an extended absence.

Milan’s next match is against their top three rival Napoli at home."We saw many games and two or three Milans. It was an indecipherable game at times, it really was. Torino had more temperament at the start and deserved to take the lead, albeit with two scuffed finishes. We raised our temperament and the pace of the ball in the second half, deserved the equaliser and towards the end it was wide open with either side able to get the winner. The plan is to play a full 75-90 minutes like this. If we can do it for 20 minutes, we can do it for a whole game,” said Montella.
