AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is disappointed with the fans' protests yesterday.
Hundreds of ultras waited outside San Siro with banners and jeered at the team bus before defeat to Parma.
"Of course it hurts, especially as people ought to remember the journey of this squad. I was looking at the statistic and over the last decade we've been the only Italian side regularly in Europe," Galliani told Sky Sport Italia.
"We hope not to miss out on Europe next season, but if it does happen then it won't be the end of the world.
"I am disappointed and it's certainly not pleasing to see the fans against the team and part of the club, but I continue smiling."
