The Rossoneri coach says his side have some psychological issues to address if they are to improve defensively

AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri warned his side against complacency in future matches after Sunday's 3-1 Serie A success over Cagliari at the San Siro.

The Rossoneri fell to a shock defeat against newly-promoted Hellas Verona on the opening weekend of Serie A and although they picked up their first three points of the season, their coach remains concerned by a lack of concentration in the side.

“I think we did well until we conceded the goal,” Allegri told reporters.

“What made me angry was we lost our focus for Cagliari’s goal. We shouldn’t stop playing like that and give the other team the chance to get back in the game.”

Allegri admitted he had reservations about his team’s fitness coming into the match on the back of their midweek Champions League Qualifier with PSV Eindhoven, but stated that number of his players had stepped up and delivered back on the Serie A stage.

“It was a very dangerous game we played here this evening as after the Champions League match, you can get bad reactions but that’s not what happened," he stated.

“Nigel De Jong worked hard and that’s good. Riccardo Montolivo played well in his new role and Nocerino did well when he came on.”

“Urby Emanuelson played well and we just have to work on not losing focus during matches.”

Milan are back in action after the international break when they travel to Turin to face Torino.
