The Italian manager, Stefano Pioli has explained the secret to AC Milan perfect debut to the Europa League 2020/21 season after they claimed another victory against Celtic.
Thursday’s 3-1 Europa League win over Celtic was the perfect way for AC Milan to launch their Group H campaign. Within five days of their 2-1 triumph over Inter Milan in the Serie A, it was pleasing for the head coach who has witnessed his side win in all their games this season.
He said, “we handled the game well. Even if in the second half we were less technically precise, we risked a little bit”.
“It was important to show that we are not a normal team that shows less of stimulus after such a desired victory as the derby”.
“The secret?” Added Pioli.
“We all work in one direction, club, technical staff, players, we all feel involved. The secreted lies in work, sacrifice, and the desire to improve”.
“Our strength is to think that the next match is always the most important and we have to go forward with this mentality”.
“In harmony, we work much better. I always tell the players to take advantage of every moment and improve more and more. This because in football, tests never end. You always have to prove”.
AC Milan will return to action on Monday in Serie A when they face Roma who also won in their Europa League with a 2-1 win over Young Boys.
“On Monday we will have a very important and difficult test against a strong opponent with quality especially at an attacking level. We will do our best to continue this positive streak”. Concluded Pioli.
After the head to head clash with the quality Roma, AC Milan will host Sparta Prague in Europa League.
