January 05 News AC Milan played 2-1 away in the 16th round of Serie A
After the victory over Salernitana, Milan coach Pioli accepted interviews with DAZN and Sky Sports Italia.
Today’s game is off to a good start for the second half of the season…
I am satisfied with today’s performance, of course we have to score more goals so that we will not be so passive in the second half of the game, but the important thing is that today I got a very good start and I got the answer I wanted
, I know this group of boys very well, so I have great confidence in them.
Milan played a good game today, I agree with Sandro (Tonali), we played very well, but there are some situations that can be better, such as when the end is in front of the goal, but we
In the end, we successfully brought home the three points. We hope to start the second half of the season with a victory. This is our goal. Now the team can prepare for the next game against Rome.
What do you think of today’s game process?
We created a lot of chances. Although we did not perform well in the warm-up match, our teamwork today was very good. Everyone was very focused. Tonali and Brahim did a good job connecting the midfield,
We also did a good job in terms of advancing and deep passing. In short, we took a very important step today.
Have Milan recovered from their poor form in the warm-up match?
Poor results in the warm-up match can make you find more problems. The performance lost to PSV made me dissatisfied, so I communicated with the players, and players such as Leo, Giroud and Special Olympics have also returned,
What they can offer can be a huge help.
I have no doubts about Milan’s level, we can play against any opponent.
Does this victory send a signal to Naples?
This is a signal to ourselves, we just want to play our own game, so it is important to start the second half well, we know that the next two months are very important, because we will play four different competitions.
Competitions: Serie A, Coppa Italia, Italian Super Cup and Champions League, we have to be ready.
After conceding a goal, you changed the formation to five at the back?
We changed to a back five and didn’t adjust back, especially after bringing in Durst, we didn’t do a good job defending crosses, that’s one of the things that needs to be improved, the important thing is not that Kalulu didn’t
Focusing on people, but poor positioning and communication, this conceded goal could have been avoided because we had a large number of defenders at the time.
What would you say to Leo to make him stay?
I repeat the same words to him every day: staying here is what you want, I feel happy in Leo, he wants to play here.
I keep saying to Leo: your journey is not over yet, what I see in him is absolutely positive.
Leo played a great game today, I don’t just mean the technical and tactical aspects, but his attitude, if he can keep it up, he can be a great player with great potential, he proved today
I can do a lot and become a champion player.
Leo is a very bright boy, he is full of belief and he is always working hard, he does not need my advice, but my advice is to stay at Milan because he is playing well here and we can continue to grow and win
What do you think of Decatur Rae’s performance today?
We have a strong frontcourt configuration, whether it’s Brahim, Dekaterra Ray or Adele are very strong, I like the way Dekater Raleigh integrated into the game today and the way he runs, I think his physical condition is also better
It was much better in the summer. From a psychological point of view, he is also relieved now. If he is lucky, he can still score a goal today. Generally speaking, I believe in the quality of Decaturray.
I don’t want to repeat it over and over again: Decaturrale has only been in Italy for four months. Great changes have taken place in both training methods and on and off the court. He needs time to adapt.
It took a long time to develop into what he is now, and Decatur Rae is already improving, and he will reach satisfactory form soon.
