AC Milan tactician Stefano Pioli emphasized that the target of his team at the end of the season is to qualify for the European Champions League next season. This emphasis was uttered by the coach following Ibrahimovic’s claims about the Scudetto title.
It must be admitted that AC Milan is one of the teams that appeared charming at the start of this season, especially in the Italian Serie A event. From a total of 11 matches that have taken place, the Rossoneri have not been defeated at all.
Thanks to him, Ibrahimovic et al are at the top of the standings with a total of 27 points from 11 matches.
Indeed, the season is still very long, but with this near-perfect start, Milan won well deserved to dream of the Scudetto title. They only need to maintain consistency and can beat big teams like Juventus and AS Roma.
Because of this, it is only natural that Zlatan Ibrahimovic mainstay invites fans to dream of the Scudetto title at the end of the season.
Regarding the claims and requests from the famous Swedish striker, coach Stefano Pioli has absolutely no problem. It’s just that the tactician asked the fans not to get their hopes up, and think realistically by setting a target to qualify for the UCL next season.
“Zlatan is right to think like this, maybe even other players, but the truth is we haven’t been in the Champions League for years,”
“We want to improve what we did last season and bring Milan to the place we deserve,” Pioli said at the La Gazzetta dello Sport Awards, as quoted by the Italian Football.
Furthermore, the former Inter Milan and Lazio coach admits that his team’s performance has improved since the lockdown ended when at that time several additional players joined including Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“I believe our journey started last January with the arrival of Ibra, [Simon] Kjaer and [Alexis] Saelemaekers,”
“We changed the way we played and how we stayed on the pitch. The results have increased our confidence. We beat clubs like Juventus and other important opponents after the lockdown, “he said.
