Stefano Pioli’s words

Stefano Pioli, interviewed by Gazzetta dello Sport, has no doubts: “To win you need talent, to repeat you need character. We will fight to defend the Scudetto, in the Champions League we want to improve.”

“A year ago we didn’t believe only that we could improve the ranking of the previous season. Even from day one we thought we could win. Every day I arrive worried, in quotes, about the spirit with which the players will work, but when I then see them on the field all doubts go away. If we continue like this we will be competitive, it doesn’t mean we will win the Scudetto again but we will have chances to win every game. As long as I see this attitude I will be calm.”

Closing remark on the market: “On paper we are missing two roles, a defender and a midfielder. We do not want to replace those who left with look-alikes, also because another Kessie is not there. We need two characteristics: explosiveness and intelligence.”
