Stefano Pioli outlines the attributes of Jens Petter Hauge and where he can still develop, describing that the second team of Milan is the key to their Serie A and Europa League success.

to win the first spot in Group H, as Lille lost 3-2 at Celtic.

“When we met Hauge as an opponent, he already proved what he could do, so we hoped he’d continue that form with us. He’s not yet complete, so can improve even more, and we’re very happy with his performances,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia.

Stefano Pioli highlights the role of the second team in his side’s success in both Serie A and the Europa League.

“When I started the season, I had faith, because it’s a quality group, a united group, but clearly it was unthinkable that we’d get these results.

“We are doing very well to play games to the full, forget them immediately and move on to the next challenge. That is our greatest strength and the players who haven’t played as much are the ones who are most important, as they allowed us to keep up the tempo in training and in matches when we have a packed fixture list.”

Pioli paid his tribute to the late legend Paolo Rossi.

This is a very sad day for me, as I played with Paolo Rossi when I was just a young kid who had arrived at Juventus. He was also a lovely person, so kind, generous and welcoming. I can only send my condolences to his family.

“Rossi won the World Cup, the Ballon d’Or, but he remained humble and embraced the simple things in life.”
