AC Milan wins, Pioli deflects praise to Zlatan Ibrahimovic
AC Milan won the victory again when faced with Parma before dawn earlier, but strangely, Ibrahimovic left the field with an unhappy face. But his behavior was lauded by coach Stefano Pioli.
Since the Italian Serie A was rolled back in mid-June, AC Milan did look more solid and consistent. In fact, the Rossoneri haven’t lost any of their last seven matches.
Latest, AC Milan managed to beat AC Parma with a landslide score of 3-1 in the match at the San Siro at dawn earlier (16/07).
You could say this victory over Parma extended AC Milan’s positive record in the second half of the season. This is obviously good news, especially considering the fact that they had shown poor performance and tended to be inconsistent at the start of the season.
But strangely, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic looked like he was unhappy with AC Milan’s victory over Parma. The Swede left the field with an unhappy face.
Coach Stefano Pioli tried to explain that actually Ibra was unhappy not because of Milan’s victory, but because of the fact that he didn’t score in the match.
“Zlatan Ibrahimovic is angry with himself for not scoring goals, but we know that that is his strength,”
“That fire makes him continue to demand the best results from himself and other players. He became a lion when on the field and that anger was a positive thing, “Pioli said after the match with Sky Sport Italia.
The highlight of the match was Frank Kessie, Ivory Coast midfielder continued to score later. Coach Stefano Pioli admitted that he had a problem with the former Atalanta player, but now everything is fine.
“There were some obstacles in Franck’s relationship with me at the start.”
“As soon as we understood each other, everything immediately became different. He proves that he is a player who is at the highest level, because he provides presence and quality in difficult times in matches, “he concluded.
Unfortunately, this victory does not necessarily bring Milan to survive in the top five, now they are in 7th position in the standings.
