Vincenzo Montella must revisit Leonardo Bonucci's role in defence

After Milan's loss to Roma, Gab Marcotti explains why it is crucial for the Rossoneri to finish in Serie A's top four.

I didn't think AC Milan were anywhere near as poor in the 2-0 home defeat to AS Roma as they have been in recent games. In fact, for most of the match they arguably had the upper hand, and yet, it only took a defensive slip-up for Roma and a super Edin Dzeko finish to pull ahead late and then add another. For all their supposed supremacy earlier in the game, Milan created less than they should have.

We've said it before: the Panini sticker approach to team-building doesn't quite work, and it may be time to revisit the back three as well. Or rather, if you're going to redesign the side to accommodate Leonardo Bonucci and go 3-5-2, at least let him (or, if not him, Alessio Romagnoli, who is also a superb passer) occasionally step into midfield and take some of the workload off the hugely predictable Lucas Biglia.
