The Rossoneri coach exalts Ibrahimovic: “He was energized and is growing, I see him more relaxed in his movements”
“We played an excellent match, conceding something and complicating our lives a little, but we put our whole personality on the pitch.” Stefano Pioli is visibly satisfied with Milan’s coup at the Olimpico against Roma. “Matches like this non-pecuniary damage – he says to Dazn’s microphones after the match -. It’s a happy moment, it’s time to enter the field with conviction and fearlessness”. On the penalty granted to Milan, the Rossoneri coach is not unbalanced: “You evaluate the referee’s decisions, now I have to dive back into the Champions League to be positive again there”.
As usual, Pioli then moves on to the analysis of the match: “In the second half, Roma surprised us a bit with the three-man construction, but we rearranged ourselves. We were good at gritting our teeth, suffering and winning the three points against a great opponent, who on this field had stopped Napoli – he reflects -. The difficulties in Serie A are many, sometimes because you are facing quality rivals and sometimes because you are playing against teams not involved in Europe. I don’t know, for me the league favorite remains Inter and I don’t think Juve is out of the game yet. What I like is that in head-to-head clashes, in the past, we had to play half a miracle to win … now instead we go out on the field convinced of our certainties and our means “.
Pioli is also happy for the recovery of some important elements of the squad: “I have five top-level midfielders, namely Tonali, Bennacer, Kessie, Krunic and also Bakayoko who is getting back in shape. In the middle of the field I can rotate, thanks to the club and of the technical area that has taken both young and experienced players “. Closing up Ibrahimovic: “Did you see him charged up? He always is … I wasn’t a champion like him, but playing away with the fans against him charged me even more. Tonight Zlatan was more active and relaxed in his movements, he is growing, as of the rest is doing Giroud “.
