De Jong: AC Milan suffering over lack of experience

Nigel De Jong admits AC Milan are lacking experience.

The former Manchester City midfielder joined Milan in the final days of the summer market.

"I think fundamentally our problems revolved around a lack of experience," said De Jong.

"This is a very young side and many players were on the bench last season only to be promoted to the first team. It is never easy to change your perspective at a club like Milan.

"We lost to Sampdoria and Atalanta, but with all due respect, I think the only difference between us in those games was experience and cynicism. We're a new group and are improving game by game."
