Andrea Poli believes that if Milan played like they did last night it would’ve been a completely different season and thinks the people in charge will analyze everything.

Brocchi chose Poli over Jose Mauri in last night’s Coppa Italia match in order to pressure Juve’ playmaker and it seemed to have worked as the Rossoneri were the better side for the majority of the final.

However, in the Rossoneri’s last match of the season, they were punished by a 110′ minute goal from Morata and Milan are finishing another season without Europe.

“We played a great match,” Poli told the Milan Channel. “If we had always played with this attitude this season, we would have reached other goals and we’d be talking about another season. We attacked, we had lots of chances to score, while they converted their only chance.

“We should have been more clinical and won this trophy for us but above all for the fans [who put on a show at the Olimpico]. The fans supported us throughout but it sadly wasn’t our day. We want to rebuild and we can do it. We dominated and had the clear cut chances. We should have closed the first half in the lead but now it is all in the past. This defeat hurts, but we played with great spirit.

“This was a massive test for all of us. This could be a big step for all of us. The result was not in our favour, but we had passion and desire. It’s vital we build on it.”

Speaking to RAI, Poli added: “We’re disappointed because we played a good game. We didn’t get the job done and we had to be more accurate. It wasn’t a positive season and if we played every game in this spirit perhaps it’d have been different. The inexplicable performance against Roma was dull and timid and on Saturday Milan was anything but that. However, football is like this.

“Brocchi? He’s a coach with good ideas but he needs today. Last night we saw a Milan from which we should start again. You have to analyze the errors and be patient. We have the right people to rebuild. Every Sunday we should head to the pitch with motivation and that should be natural.

“We lack in continuity and those in charge will analyze everything. But I can’t put any blame on the team for Saturday.” The Milan contract of Poli, 26-years-old, expires in June 2017.

Even legends like gattuso, inzaghi, makalele and gerd mueller sometimes only have very few specific skills. Im not comparing average player like poli with them but as you can see last night hes useful squad player as he does his job and rarely complains. No way should he be starting 11 but its good to have him on the bench or to be called to execute certain game plans

domt even dare to put gattuso and poli in the same sentence. gattuso was a vital player for us and at least he could score an open goal

I dont, im just pointing the fact squad players like poli, evani, colombo, dhorasoo, vogel, even brocchi himself are very useful to fill the void left by usual suspects. And yes gattuso, as much as i love him, was very one dimensional, hes like davids minus technical ability. He had one role only, a destroyer. And if u actually watched the match last night ud know milan started to lose control of mf, letting dybala, pogba and their wingers roaming freely when poli was substituted. And exactly after monto was out too milan totally lost balance because freewheeling kukca and… Read more »
