Pioli doesn’t expose himself on Var in press conference

The AC Milan coach ahead of the San Siro match against Dinamo Zagreb spoke in the eve press conference.

Pioli wants to take advantage of it: “It is an opportunity, we are well and we have prepared this match well. We know the difficulties we will face, Dinamo has a direct, concrete and effective game.”

On Dinamo Zagreb’s surprising win over Chelsea he said, “We definitely did not need that match to prepare for a match of this level, we are used to preparing the match ahead of us as the most difficult and the most important. I hear about the difference in level between Champions and Serie A, but if we play at our level, if we keep our performance level high then we can win in Europe as well.”

The Diavolo coach also took the opportunity to talk about the tight schedule, “This is the eighth game since the start of the season, but the team is well mentally. And when you are well with your head you are also well with your legs.”

Pioli then concluded, commenting on the recent controversy over VAR: “What happened is a bit disorienting. It’s easy to point fingers, but we need to find better solutions where there is more balance for a better final decision.”
