Rossoneri suffered third defeat in seven games on Sunday.
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has insisted that the club “must remain calm” despite their disappointing start to the season.
The Rossoneri have just eight points from seven games so far this season, and suffered their third defeat of the campaign in the 3-2 loss to Juventus on Sunday night.
As a result, there is an early 11-point gap to the third and final Champions League spot, with supporters growing increasingly irritated with both coach Massimiliano Allegri and the club’s management of the squad.
“Things are certainly not going right, but the same happened last season,” Galliani said according to Football Italia.
“We have to stay calm. And things have gone well in the Champions League for us. The international break comes at the right time. We’ll be able to recover a few players.”
The likes of Mattia De Sciglio, Kaka and Mario Balotelli are all expected to return from injury and suspension respectively, and it is hoped from a Milan perspective that they will be able to improve the club’s fortunes.
Nevertheless, it has been a bitterly disappointing start to the campaign, and with the minimum objective being to reach the Champions League, the Rossoneri will now have a tough time catching their rivals.
“Have I spoken with Silvio Berlusconi? I always hear from the President, whether we win, lose or draw. But what we say to each other will remain our business,” Galliani added.
Milan find themselves in a similar position to last season where they eventually produced a recovery to take third place, but with Allegri again under pressure they will need to quickly deliver results when domestic matters resume after the international break.
