MILAN. Philippe Mexes hopes Milan can use today’s Serie A trip to former club Roma as the springboard to a more consistent run of results.
After starting the 2014-15 league campaign with just one defeat from their opening nine outings, Filippo Inzaghi’s men have hit a patch of indifferent form in recent weeks.
Their last six outings have seen two wins, two draws and two defeats as they have struggled to find top form.
There were encouraging signs last time out, as goals from Jeremy Menez and Giacomo Bonaventura secured a 2-0 home win over Napoli, a result which lifted them to sixth in the table, two points shy of third place and the Uefa Champions League qualifying berths.
And Mexes, who moved to Milan from Roma in 2011, hopes they can follow up that success with another three points at the Stadio Olimpico.
“Hopefully we can win at Roma,” he told the club’s official website. “We have not achieved anything yet but the road ahead is still very long.
“We certainly have what it takes in this side to obtain a run of results and become a more consistent team. We will prepare throughout the week for this match.”
