Tassotti admits "tension" inside AC Milan

AC Milan No2 Mauro Tassotti confesses there's great "tension" inside the club going into tonight's clash with Cagliari.

Tassotti admits they desperately need a win to ease the pressure.

"It is useless to deny it, there are tensions. Negative results create tensions. Defeat in the opening round to Sampdoria took away a little confidence. Something has changed. The match against Cagliari, for example, is not easy. But we must not forget only four games have been played," he said.

"I've been here 32 years and I feel a part of Milan. I do not know what will happen in the next few years, but what matters is what happened in the past.

"Milan is in my skin. This year we have to play with a knife between our teeth. We no longer have Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who ensured us 35/40 goals a season."
