Hellas Verona manager Andrea Mandorlini says that a defensive mistake cost his side from claiming a point against AC Milan.

Hellas Verona manager Andrea Mandorlini has spoken of his regret following his side's 1-0 defeat against AC Milan.

Alejandro Gonzalez gave away a late penalty kick for a foul on Kaka and Mario Balotelli successfully converted it.

"We made a huge mistake, as the game was heading towards a draw at that stage," Mandorlini told Sky Sport Italia.

"That's how it went, these things happen in football. The referee made the right decision, as it was a clear penalty.

"In the second half we came out of our shell and created four or five great chances, but got the final pass wrong. It was a good performance apart from the opening 15 minutes, as we knew where Milan wanted to move the ball."

Verona are currently sixth in the Serie A table and are level on 32 points with fifth-placed Inter Milan.
