Gennaro Gattuso has accused his AC Milan team of disappearing during tough moments.
Gattuso, who took over the team after Vincenzo Montella left the club last month, was bothered over the lifeless display in Croatia.
“I get the feeling that when something negative happens, the team just disappears and we need to work on that,” Gattuso said after the match.
“We have got to change direction, because we are going nowhere like this.
“When you wear the Milan jersey, you need to respect it. All this really hurts me. We did not come here to lose.
“When we get a punch in the teeth, I get the feeling we never recover.
“We were embarrassing and the absence of some first-choice players should not be an excuse.”
“I was expecting more, this was a pretty poor show,” he said.
“We need to turn things around and a change in mentality. We need more intensity and desire and all these things weren’t there.”
