Ancelotti stays upbeat after latest AC Milan defeat

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti attempted to stay upbeat, despite suffering a 1-0 defeat to Roma last night.

"We are not depressed, just disappointed. After the game we evaluated the current form," he explained after the San Siro shock.

"It is a tough time, especially on home turf. Today was a balanced match with chances for both sides. They broke the deadlock, although we played just as well."

Mirko Vucinic's strike secured the victory, but it could have been more as Daniele De Rossi chipped a penalty off target and Massimo Ambrosini was sent off.

Ancelotti continued: "We have to think of how to quickly get over this tough moment. We are very inconsistent, a little distracted and as usual conceded a goal with a cross from the byeline. We can do better.

"I did not shout at anyone. We just need to find the cure for what ails us and the only certain thing I can say is that we will not change our tactics. We are all united and can get back up again, just as we did in the past. When we have other players at our disposal, then perhaps we can adjust a few things."
