Rafael Leao confronted a journalist after AC Milan’s defeat against Roma in the Europa League.

The Rossoneri were defeated by their league rivals at the San Siro in the first leg of their quarter-final on Thursday night.

Leao had a performance to forget and was substituted in the 78th minute to be replaced by Noah Okafor.

The Portuguese international was walking through the mixing area after the match when he told a journalist: “Do your job well.”

Manager Stefano Pioli was asked why he replaced Leao and Christian Pulisic as they searched for a crucial draw.

‘Pulisic and Leao are confident. “Players like them, even on a tough night, can make an important play,” he said.

“I made the changes when I thought it was right.”

Leao has suffered inconsistency with Milan this season after a super campaign last season.

The 24-year-old winger has scored just six goals in Serie A, compared to 15 last season.

A Gianluca Mancini header sealed Roma’s 1-0 victory on Thursday and ensured everything is on the line in next week’s second leg.

Milan, who sit second in Serie A, return to action this weekend when they take on relegation-threatened Sassuolo at the San Siro.
