AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli looked very excited to see his players managed to win over AS Roma last weekend. According to the former Inter Milan coach, the Rossoneri have not won a game against a tough opponent for a long time.
As is known, the 28th Italian Serie A Giornata this weekend was marred by a big match duel between AC Milan versus AS Roma. In the match that took place at the San Siro, the Rossoneri Host managed to win with a landslide score of 2-0.
This victory is important for AC Milan, because then they are now only three points behind the Europa League zone in the standings. In addition, the victory also extends AC Milan’s positive record since the league was rolled out again.
Yes, to date AC Milan has reaped two consecutive wins, there is only one bad result obtained by Milan, precisely when held to draw Juventus at the Coppa Italia. It’s disappointing, because defeat also makes them eliminated.
But at least the victory over AS Roma has broken AC Milan’s bad record when dealing with big teams. No wonder after the match, coach Stefano Pioli was so excited by this result.
“The weather is very hot, so it’s hard to imagine playing with an intense rhythm for 90 minutes,”
“We deserve to win because we work as a team, even with some mistakes, and it’s been a while since we last won the match against the big team,” Pioli told DAZN after the match.
In the match, Anter Rebic became the main star of Milan’s victory, he seemed to succeed in replacing Ibrahimovic who was pulled over because of injury.
“He is an important reference point and can attack empty space. He certainly can still develop, because he is not only physically strong but has good techniques too, “he added.
“I think he just needs to get used to the position of central attacker rather than winger. If he maintains this attitude, he can certainly play well, “concluded Pioli.
AC Milan itself is preparing to face SPAL at the 29th Giornata this week.
