Arrigo Sacchi says AC Milan have failed to fix the problems they suffered last season.
Reflecting on their recent run of poor results, former Milan coach Sacchi said: "For all the good memories, friendships and affection I experienced with Milan, I said that last season they managed a football miracle to win the Champions League. They were able to extract gold from a situation destined for failure."
He added: "Some of the players are struggling. They lack motivation.
"Of course there is time for them to turn it around. But the question for management is whether the course they are on is the right one for a club of Milan's stature."
