Allegri enraged by Milan friendly defeat

14 October 2013 12:46

Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has blasted his side's performance in Sunday's 3-0 friendly defeat to French outfit Caen.

With many of his first-team regulars away on international duty, Allegri took the opportunity to have a look at some of the fringe players in his squad by organising the fixture with the Ligue 2 outfit.

But his side were overrun by the French side leaving Allegri angry with the lack of desire from his charges, especially those who have been champing at the bit for a regular place in the starting XI.

Speaking to the club's official website, Allegri said: "I'm not singling anybody out, but you can't go asking the coach to play more often if then you go and play like this.

"To play football, you need more than skill, you need effort too.

"This was anything but a good game. You need to take to the field always looking to obtain the best result, no matter what game it is."

Milan have had a poor start to the new Serie A season, winning just two games in seven matches.

They face Udinese at San Siro on Saturday, and Allegri urged his team to focus on victory.

Milan could be boosted by the return of several of first-team regulars including Brazil international Kaka.

He added: "We're going to have to use our heads because it's not a good period for us.

"Kaka and (Valter) Birsa will be available and maybe one of (Matias) Silvestre and (Mattia) De Sciglio too, we'll have to see.

"It's going to be a tough game against Udinese, who have quality players, but we've got to think about winning."
