AC Milan played out a goalless draw against Fiorentina, and the Italian feels that it was down to their lack of courage, though he fells they managed well.

Vincenzo Montella feels Rossoneri lacked of courage in their goalless draw against Fiorentina.

If they manage to win the match against Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi that would have sent them in the top three spot ahead of Inter, but

AC Milan struggled through the match and were lucky not to concede a goal, when Josip Ilicic's penalty strike the post.

While Milan imporver their playing style in the second half and could have won the match but the referee waved away the penalty appeal.

"In the first half, we lacked a little courage," Montella told Mediaset Premium. "Fiorentina were a little superior [in the first half], but I saw an even match overall.

"We gave up a lot of room. We were afraid, and I expected more. In the second half, we created more chances and I really liked the will to win.

"But it was a test passed with a minimum grade. We must pass more tests."

Paulo Sousa {Fiorentina coach} keen to discuss the refereeing decisions after some controversial call came in for them,

"With Paulo there is great respect, but he seems to have learned the culture of suspicion that there is in this country very well," he added.

"We need to talk about football. We all make mistakes, including referees. I do not want to enter into this controversy. I prefer to talk about the game."
