Montella: We have to stay positive

AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella has declared that the team have to show character and determination as they aim to end their poor run of results.

The Rossoneri have lost four consecutive games in all competitions and have gone five games without a win. Their last victory was on 12 January against Torino.

Montella acknowledged the disappointing spell, but remains bullish in his quest to restore the team to their former greatness.

"I always try to think positive. My mission is to bring the fans back to the stadium, and I think we're building a winning mentality, which is in AC Milan's DNA," he told Milan TV.

"We already did something great by beating Juventus and winning the Supercup in Doha, but we have to put that behind us and continue working, focusing on our style of play.

"We have to keep calm and show great hunger because now we have to show our pride to end this negative spell."
