Riccardo Montolivo has called on AC Milan teammates to keep hold of third place.

Milan have dropped four points from the last two games.

"We have to try to keep this position," Montolivo told Milan Channel. "We have four points over Fiorentina and we are four behind Napoli.

"We were hoping to beat Napoli on Sunday so as to move closer to them in the table, but we didn't manage that. They played very well and they are a very good team.

"It was a pity, but the points we are really missing are not those from Sunday night but those from Florence where we threw away two clear points. But we have to just look ahead."
