Milan, Conte new coach? Pioli: “Voices bore me”

The Rossoneri coach is focused on the second part of the season

Antonio Conte next Milan manager? The transfer rumors chase each other and, while waiting for news, the current Rossoneri coach Stefano Pioli has to live with a situation that “doesn’t bother” but “bores me a bit”. Modern football is like this. This week two of my illustrious colleagues announced their farewell to prestigious benches 5 months earlier. We are focused on the present because we think there are still possibilities to make the season positive”, says Pioli in a press conference on the eve of the match against Frosinone.

“The objective is to try to win every match from here to the end. I believe a lot in my players -continues Pioli-. During the week I had confirmation that it is a technically and morally strong group. Bennacer? He gives us intensity, aggression, quality He had a slight injury in the Africa Cup of Nations, he returned to us yesterday. He doesn’t have much playing time but he is available.” Who will take the penalties now after the two errors against Bologna? “I have decided on the hierarchy and I will communicate it to the team tomorrow”, says the Rossoneri coach.

In the winter transfer market, “a defender didn’t arrive because the opportunities that were created didn’t meet our needs. We needed a top-quality defender who was ready immediately, not that he had to learn the language or anything else. Pellegrino left because he needed to play and at this moment he would have struggled with us”, adds Pioli.
