Vicenzo Montella has set a realistic spot for Milan at the end of the season, with the manager targeting Europa league spot for the club.
Milan play their first game of the campaign at home, against former boss Mihajlovic’s Torino. And reports suggest only 10, 000 season tickets have been sold.
Montella, who took over in July, is hoping to reconnect the fans and the players, but refused to set unrealistic expectations.
“There are stronger squads out there, but the important thing is that we believe in ourselves,” he said. “I think my players are better than they think they are.
“We need to set credible targets. We need to get into the Europa League. We need to get back into Europe because that’s Milan’s home.
“It’s important that everyone works hard for the good of Milan and I include the fans. The players need confidence in order to achieve good results.”
