The Rossoneri are recently took part in 24 competitions without defeat and top

In spite of the wonderful season beginning, Pioli stated never thought about clash of the Scudetto.
“If we are still in this position on Week 32, I would say yes,” Pioli said to L’Equipe. “But there are still many games ahead of us and we must focus on our target, which is to return to the Champions League.
“The project here is clear. We no longer look at what has happened in the past, but at the
present and the future.”
“Many young players have been brought in, the target is to make them understand what it means to be part of
and bring the club back to the heights of a time.”
In contrary to the presence of 39-year-old veteran
The Rossoneri have the undeveloped squad in the Europa League.
“Young doesn’t mean superficial,” Pioli said. “I have a very responsible, serious and mature team.
“There are players like [Gianluigi] Donnarumma, [Franck] Kessie, [Alessio] Romagnoli and [Hakan] Calhanoglu, who have strong personalities within the group.”
Pioli is called the ‘Normal One’ and said ‘simplicity’ is significant to him.
“Simplicity is an important feature for me,” he added. “I have my ideas and I try to adapt them to the players I have at my disposal.
“I’m not a fundamentalist and I try to put the group in the best conditions to make the most of it, following the main characteristics of my players.”
