Romagnoli: ‘Milan will keep believing in Champions League’

Alessio Romagnoli assures Milan will ‘keep believing’ as long as it’s mathematically possible for them to reach the next Champions League stage.

The Rossoneri picked up their first point in four games today, fighting back from an early Luis Diaz strike to draw 1-1 at San Siro with a Chancel Mbemba own goal.

“It was not a good first half and I think everyone saw that, but we were more like ourselves after the restart,” Romagnoli told Milan TV.

“It’s disappointing, because we gave it our best shot. We created lots of chances in the second half and know the Champions League is difficult, but our performances in general across the four games were worth more than one point.

“We will keep believing as long as it’s possible to qualify. It all depends on us, even though we also need other results to go our way too.

“We wanted to make the fans happy this evening, they were fantastic, so we hope to give them that joy in the derby on Sunday instead.”
