AC Milan coach Allegri urges players not to dwell on Verona shock

AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is confident ahead of their Champions League qualifier tonight against PSV Eindhoven.

Milan lost to Hellas Verona on the weekend and go into tonight's second-leg with scores locked at 1-1.

“We need to have the right attitude tomorrow,” Allegri remarked. “That was lacking against Verona.

“Perhaps that was my fault – especially in the second half. There were errors made in the reading of certain situations. I do not want to see cocky attitudes from my players. We need to grow up and do it quickly.

“But I’m sure tomorrow we’ll play an intense, technically good match. We have to be careful against PSV though. We have to win and cannot think of anything else.

“We are at home and need to redeem ourselves after Saturday. Everyone knows the importance of this match. PSV are a team that plays well and can put us in trouble.

“We will not change much from the first leg though.”
