Milan Unbothered By Poor Start

It's been another awful start to the domestic season for European champion AC Milan. Sunday's 1-0 loss to AS Roma capped a second successive league loss at the San Siro; the club has yet to win on home soil in Serie A this season. Now 13th in the league, the Rossoneri sit just three points ahead of the relegation zone.

A record of two wins, four ties and there losses is enough to get many big club coaches fired, but Milan's Carlo Ancelotti and President Silvio Berlusconi told reporters they were unbothered by the poor results, which constitute the worst start for the storied Serie A club in 24 years. "We are not depressed, just disappointed," Ancelotti said. "Today was a balanced match with chances for both sides. They broke the deadlock, although we played just as well." The Milan coach admitted that the Rossoneri have been "very inconsistent," but he said, "the only certain thing I can say is that we will not change our tactics."

In a separate interview, Berlusconi insisted the club was not distracted with the Champions League, where its results have been better. "Unfortunately, in soccer, there is a lot of irrationality," he said. "But there's no need to be worried." Instead, he pointed to the club's achievements: "Milan is European champion, European Super Cup champion, and next month will be fighting for the World Club Cup."
