The A.C Milan defender has urged his teammates to tighten up the defence if they intend to defend the Scudetto.

A.C Milan have conceded 16 goals in as many league matches in the 2011/12 Serie A thus far, as compared to 24 they conceded in the entire 2010/11 campaign. believes that it is a worrying sign, and his team must tighten up their defence in order to ensure a smooth campaign. The defender admitted that his team lacks focus while playing against the smaller teams and it cost
them two points in their recent league game against Bologna.
The Italian Champions were held to a 2-2 draw recently, and Silva admitted that they could have won the game easily had he played with more concentration.
“I’m going to talk only about myself. We would not have conceded two goals in Bologna had I been more focused. In that game I got it all wrong. [Massimiliano] Allegri wants more concentration from us - currently smaller teams are
given less attention than when we face big sides like Barcelona. But in this League the defence is key - if we do not concede then we are sure we can score goals.”
The defender has been a rock in the central defence for the Champions, and has started to find his best form. Milan conceded 8 goals in their opening five league games of the season, but since then they have been miserly in defence.
The Champions have let in only two goals in their last seven league outings.
The defender has scored two goals so far this season, including a last minute equaliser in the UEFA Champions League game against Silva is looking to score more goals this season, as he believes that scoring goals improves
his game.
“When I score my game changes for the better. In three years with I scored 14 goals, this is my third season with Milan and five goals are, for me, an understatement.”
Milan will take on Atalanta in their next league game on Sunday, January 8, 2012.
