Milan, Pioli defends Leao and thinks about turnover

Milan coach Stefano Pioli in a press conference took stock of the situation ahead of the match against Verona. The last two games, the heavy knockout in the derby and the 0-0 draw with Newcastle, have shaken the Rossoneri’s confidence and a win with the Gialloblu is needed: "Winning è important, especially for us who come from a defeat in the league. There are no easy games, there is the desire to play it well to try to win".

On a possible turnover: "All the players are pawing to play. They count the first 11 picks, but then there are the players who will come in. There will be room for everyone, those who play less è obviously they have to grit their teeth. The team is fine, è convinced of what it is doing. It's willing to play the right game to win. Giroud? He is fine but has to be managed".

Leao: "He is making an important path, he is doing everything to go from an important player to a champion. He is growing in maturity, in responsibilityà. I don’t like that a single player is given responsibility for a result. Leao has to learn how to handle situations, at the level of character, of mentality; he is taking the right steps".

Mike Maignan&#39s condition: "He had no injuries. It's an evolution that has to be followed day by day, è clearly at this stage an injury like that can make you miss one or two games. It should not be a long injury. Sportiello knows our ideas of the game, è ready to give his contribution in construction"-
