AC Milan chief Massimo Mirabelli says he's to blame for their dismal campaign.
Milan lost 2-0 at home to Atalanta on Saturday.
“We already apologised to the fans last week (after the 3-0 defeat to Hellas Verona) and we do so again," Mirabelli told Sky Sport Italia.
“We knew that this project was a long and tortuous proposition, although perhaps we expected fewer difficulties. We don't have time to let our heads drop or create excuses. There's Inter in the Coppa Italia and we must face it with the utmost dignity.
“You all analysed these players, with so many internationals. There are some difficulties and that is disappointing. More than disappointment for the lost games, we are sorry for the fans who cheer us on. We must win the people back and prove wrong those who say this squad is not worthy of Milan."
