Milan's improvement has come after they went to Rome on a training retreat.
"From the start I tried to bring balance to the defence, but obviously when a Coach arrives with a different mentality it takes time to settle and get the idea. As time goes on, we are more and more able to keep that balance in both phases with 11 players.
"The improvement of the team is thanks to time and the players getting to know each other within this new approach.
"We previously lost games when we played well, such as Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Napoli, when we had nine players suffering from a high temperature, and Parma when we were down to 10 men after five minutes. These are not excuses, but reasons why those games didn't go the way we wanted them to."
