The Rossoneri coach: “We have to find continuity of results to compete. We can get a positive result with Chelsea”
On the sidelines of the award ceremony of the 43rd edition of Torneo Nereo Rocco, Stefano Pioli also talked about his future. “I feel at home at Milan and when one feels at home one would not want to consider anything else – explained the Rossoneri coach -. We still have a lot of things to do but I’m not worried about my contract or my future at all“. On the season:” We try to further improve our level. I think we are doing well but the difficulties in the championship are evident, in the sense that it is a very level championship with many strong teams that will fight until the end “.
A special season because of the World Cup that will break it in two. “That it will be an anomalous championship this is evident and we will need to manage the players who go to the World Cup well. It is a championship that will see us very busy from October until November 13, staying in the top positions will be a goal not only for Milan but for all the teams that want to win the championship. For the next two months we must try to play well, as Milan, and win many games. “
The coach is back to talk about Milan-Napoli. “I understand many things. As always, we evaluate our performances very carefully. Our performance was of a high level but the fact that we were not able to reach a positive result means that in some situations we can and must do more.”
“We have a high level, we are a strong team, I am lucky enough to coach a fantastic group. We have the ability to test ourselves, even in the Champions League. I still believe there is not so much difference in playing so well in the Champions League. Italy or in Europe and I still think that it is not true that Italian football is not a coach to try to compete in European competitions too – continued Pioli -. You have to play football well, then it is clear that the Champions League requires a level of quality. and at a very high pace. The next two direct clashes with Chelsea will be very demanding matches but if we keep our levels we will have a good chance of obtaining a positive result. “
On the next matches “I understand the expectations, but the most difficult match will be that of Empoli, for various reasons. I do not put my hands forward but we will arrive from a stop where I will meet the players only two days before the away match in Empoli. It will be a very delicate match. then it is clear that we are talking about the direct clashes against Juventus and Chelsea “.
