Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti was unconcerned by his side’s surprising 1-0 defeat to AEK Athens.
The result, along with Lille’s 2-2 draw with Anderlecht, virtually guaranteed Milan topping Group H.
“The Champions League only comes alive (when the knockout stage starts) at the end of February,” Ancelotti told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Our objective was to win the group and we have done that. That is all that counts now. The rest can wait.
“We created many chances, but we didn’t score. (Striker Filippo) Inzaghi made a few mistakes, but that is understandable. When you don’t play much, the pressure can get to you,” Ancelotti said.
Milan’s defeat came on the back of a series of poor domestic results, where the club have won just one of their last nine matches and languish near the foot of Serie A.
