We reacted and managed to equalise. There was fight from us, but once we had got the scores level, we then made things complicated for ourselves and we conceded to make it 3-2. We’re in a tough situation because the results aren’t coming. We work hard, but we’re not seeing our efforts rewarded. I’m sorry for the club, the fans and for the team that is here every day trying to turn things around. There are matches in which we need to show our technical worth and more. The character of the side is also important as it is a distinguishing feature of this club.”Amelia added the following: "We have to start from scratch, by taking to the pitch with an even more determined attitude and to avoid making things difficult. Unfortunately some of these difficulties have been with us for a long time and even from last summer. They haven’t been resolved and they’ve remained for the whole season. The current atmosphere isn’t an ideal one and that’s an issue. It’s normal that we’re criticised, but it’s down to us to change those opinions. Milan are a team with values. It’s down to us to show how much we’re worth from now until May. It will then be down to the club to make its decisions come the end of the season and to create a winning side. In 1998 the team was in difficulty and the year after we won the Scudetto. Let’s hope that we can repeat that.”The Italian goalie focused once again on the match with Parma: "At 1-0 down they played on our weaknesses. They pressed us a lot. I tried to tell my team-mates to push further up the pitch. They are difficult moments to deal with. My performance counts for very little. It would have been important if I had saved the penalty and a psychological boost for the team. I wasn’t able to and I’m sorry. We weren’t able to change the situation. We’ve got to focus solely on working this week because there are two tough away trips waiting for us.”Amelia also commented on the recent protests by the Milan fans: "The players will react in a positive manner. I’m sure of it. The fans are clever and profound people. They were positive with their criticisms. They’re encouraging us to move on. The value of our fans isn’t in doubt. They will never abandon us, because they know Milan needs them and they’re a vital part of the club’s success. In this moment they will help us even more in getting out of this tough situation.”Milan’s shot-stopper finished by commenting on the upcoming matches: "It will be hard against Lazio and Fiorentina. Lazio are having off the field problems, but they go into the match on the back of a win. The result is a consequence of the performance. We hope to get back on track soon. It’s been 12 years since I was at Roma. It’s normal that there are certain feelings, but I’m not thinking about this. I want to be available for the group and support my team-mates on the pitch and during training.”
