Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti is confident his team will soon be back to winning ways after a poor run of form which has seen them lose four of their last five Serie A matches.
“Things are not going well, but I am convinced we will snap out of it,” he told the club’s website on Tuesday.
“It’s not to say I’m not worried, because I am. It’s a very negative period, but it hasn’t happened by chance. These poor results our down to several factors.
“We have spoken a lot about our lack of preparation in the summer due to several of our players returning from the World Cup and needing to rest, and also about the injuries we’ve had.
“But now we have to put all that behind us and start working in a different way. I don’t know if we are doing too little, or trying too hard. Whatever it is, it’s not enough. Three consecutive home defeats, plus the loss at Atalanta, is not good and things must change.”
Milan, who began the season on minus eight points because of their involvement in the Italian match-fixing scandal, currently sit fifth from bottom on seven points.
