MILAN - Following Milan vs. Inter in the TIM Cup, Antonio Candreva had this to say in the mixed zone: “It is perhaps an unexpected and painful defeat because we cared a lot about the Coppa Italia. We must now start again with confidence and as of tomorrow, we’ll already be preparing for an important match. We are disappointed to have been eliminated.
“There are no comparisons with last season. We’d put last year to bed with these first few months. After a great start, we are now confronted with our first few problems and we must do well to pick ourselves up.
“We lost a half against Udinese, while against Sassuolo we were punished due to certain episodes. It is a shame for us and the fans also.”
