AC Milan coach Maurizio Ganz felt his team missed a golden opportunity to win their first-ever silverware on Sunday night as they suffered defeat in the Coppa Italia Femminile final.
Despite conceding plenty of chances, the Rossonere looked very dangerous when they attacked. There were points of both the 90 minutes and the 30 minutes of extra time where they looked destined to score.
In the end, a poor set of penalties meant they lost the shoot-out 3-1 and will have to regroup before attempting to mount a title challenge next season.
Speaking in his press conference at the Mapei Stadium after the game, Ganz clearly felt his side did enough to come away with the trophy.
“We had more than one opportunity, we had an excellent match and in my opinion, we had more chances than them,” he said.
Ganz was keen to not let this defeat detract from how good a season Milan have had, who finished second in Serie A Femminile.
“This defeat does not detract from our great season, even if losing on penalties burns even more,” Ganz added. “It has been a great season, but it is clear that we were hoping to take the Cup home tonight.”
