Mihajlovic rues error-strewn display

AC Milan head coach Sinisa Mihajlovic conceded his side were guilty of committing far too many errors on Saturday as they slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Juventus.

Mihajlovic selected a very attack-minded team against the Bianconeri, but he felt they could have created more chances after hardly testing Gigi Buffon in the home goal.

In the end, Paulo Dybala's 65th-minute goal was all that separated the two Italian giants at the Juventus Stadium as the defending champions climbed above the Rossoneri in the Serie A standings.

The Serbian coach has called for improvements to be made going forward after seeing his players lose possession far too often against Juve, while also urging them to show more intent in the final third of the pitch.

"During the game, above all the first half, we made too many mistakes in our passing and then we got the counter-attacks wrong too," Mihajlovic told Sky Sports.

"We fielded the most attacking line-up we could. Paradoxically, we did well defensively and should've done more going forward.

"We have players good at taking men on, but we need more courage to push into the box. It can go wrong, but you have to try, whereas we tend to get into those situations and then pass it backwards.

"We should take opponents on. It is our duty to free these attacking wide men so they can take on individual defenders one-on-one, making the most of their characteristics."

He added: "We must try to keep working, aware there are difficulties and there's a large margin for improvement. It's always difficult against Juventus in Turin, we lost, but will prepare for the next match."
