Allegri insisted the result was â€śa small step forwardâ€ť for Milan and explained his choice of starting XI.
â€śIâ€™d say we made a lot of technical mistakes in the first half. Itâ€™s not an easy moment and of course the pressure is on to win every game,â€ť said the Coach.
â€śAfter the break the team found more courage and created some important scoring opportunities. We are using up some mental energy that with a victory would make things easier.
â€śWe must continue working and improve on those aspects that need improving. I think getting tense and talking too much would not be helpful.
â€śMy lads played with effort, courage and intensity, while Anderlecht never had a shot on target. It is a small step forward, as we kept a clean sheet, so now weâ€™ve got to score against Udinese.â€ť
