Pobega baffled by Milan struggles as Serie A dip continues


Tommaso Pobega of AC Milan looks dejected during the Serie A match between Bologna FC and AC MIlan at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara on April 15, 2023 in Bologna, Italy.

Milan midfielder Tomasso Pobega bemoaned a missed opportunity in Serie A against Bologna.

Stefano Pioli’s side fell behind with just 33 seconds played, with Pobega equalising five minutes before the break with a thunderous strike.

Despite dominating proceedings, Milan were unable to find a winner in the game and dropping points opens the door to rivals Inter and Atalanta in the hunt for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.

Having been held to a draw, Milan could end the weekend outside of the top four and have testing fixtures to finish the season – including a trip to face Juventus on the final day.

While there has been plenty of attention on the two recent victories over Napoli, domestic form is a huge concern with Milan having just a solitary victory in their last six Serie A games.

Pobega is aware that Milan need to fare better in the coming weeks, though he is unsure as to why the side is struggling.

“We paid for the approach with the game, we made a mistake at the beginning,” he told DAZN.

“It’s too bad, we threw away points and it’s not the first time. It hurts. We are preparing for the games as best we can, we have to start strong and score goals.

“We all train well, all strong, we wanted to make an impression today, and it’s a shame. We needed to be more precise and incisive.”

However, Pobega refuted the suggestion that Milan paid too much attention to Tuesday’s second leg in the Champions League against Napoli.

“I don’t think so, we were focused on this game. We gave so much today, we just have to look where we went wrong,” he replied when asked if that was the case.
