Vincenzo Montella;Milan’s coach
It was weighing us down, the Lazio defeat, for the way it happened, but I was pleased with the way we approached the game today and the spirit we showed. We played quickly, particularly in the first 20 minutes, finishing the game off clinically. We know we still have to work hard, but this was a big win for us. Now we’ve got to put it to one side and prepare for the Udinese game.
The 5-1 scoreline is Austria’s heaviest on their own turf in this competition and matches their worst ever home loss in Europe.
