Pioli continue to be surprised by Ac Milan form

1 min read

Serie A leaders AC Milan continue to surprise coach Stefano Pioli with their maturity, he said after watching his side overcome the absence of key players to win a tough match 2-1 at Sampdoria on Sunday.

Milan’s starting lineup had an average age of under 23 but they still managed to overcome opponents who seemed determined to turn the match into a scrap.

“We were missing three important players, but the team has always taken the opportunity, even in negative situations, to show that they are strong, that this is a cohesive group,” said Pioli.

“We had a very young team on the field, but they continue to surprise me with their maturity. We didn’t let our heads drop when things were going badly and we’re not getting carried away now.”

However, he still did not see Milan as favourites to win Serie A even though they are five points clear after 10 games.

“How is it possible to think that Juventus are still not the favourites after nine successive titles, or that Inter Milan cannot challenge with investments like such as Achraf Hakimi and Arturo Vidal. But we must continue to grow and improve.”

Pioli’s main concern was his team’s defending at set pieces, with Sampdoria’s goal coming from a corner. “We need to be more focused on set plays even though we’re lacking a few centimetres (in height),” he said.

  1. An fascinating discussion will be worth comment. I’m sure that you can write on this topic, it will not certainly be a taboo subject but normally individuals are there are not enough to talk on such topics. To another location. Cheers
