The Rossoneri coach speaks clearly

In the end came a success, 4-2 over Udinese, to start the new Serie A season, but Stefano Pioli did not hide some concern regarding two fundamental aspects of the game such as the mental approach to matches and the management of the defensive phase.

“The fact of conceding goals after a short time, like in the friendly against Vicenza, I did not like: we have to start the matches better,” Pioli lamented. “But then we played a half hour of great soccer, let’s try to restart from that.

“The defensive phase and the two goals conceded? We need to work much better, we need to develop awareness in these situations. Everyone has to contribute, when the forwards work well our defenders also manage to play better.”
