Milan coach after the 2-2 draw with Napoli: “The mistake was conceding the first goal. We mentally brought the team we were controlling back into the match. Substitutions? If my players want explanations, I will give them.”
Stefano Pioli reviews the missed opportunities by his Milan team, despairing after the 2-2 draw against Maradona with Napoli: “There is a bitter taste in the mouth after the double lead. The certain thing is that if we had lost this one too, we would have lost.” “We have to talk about a particularly unfortunate moment… The mistake was conceding the first goal. We mentally brought Napoli back to the game that we dominated in the first half. We were not even passive in the second half, but we scored two goals.” “They’re too few. It’s a shame, the performance was there, and to leave with one point is unfortunate.”
Milan, the next mistakes
He then focused on his team’s lack of accuracy in front of goal: “I hope this is a temporary situation – he tells DAZN Microphones – but above all it is important to have many chances, to have a proactive game. We must continue to grow and improve, the level of players The competition in the league and in the Champions League is very high and we start with the ambition of winning. As for the Scudetto, we know that we are not alone. There are at least 3-4 teams at the highest level. Then we will see what my fate will be. I have learned that it is better not to think too much about the future.
Changes were discussed
Liao and Jiro did not accept the change. Pioli explains it as follows: “We needed new energy, we have been playing a lot lately. Changes were made to improve the team, they were a bit tired. If they want explanations I will give them.” Finally, the point about Maradona’s injured players: “Kalulu wasn’t supposed to play, we don’t know if it was a bruise or something worse. Pulisic had a flexed muscle, I didn’t want to risk it. Pellegrino has a bad injury.” “He sprained his ankle and was no longer able to run.”
