Pioli stressed the Rossoneri's primary goal is to return to the Champions League
2020 has been a dream year for Milan. They are at the top of the table and have not lost in Serie A this season. However, Stefano Pioli revealed that the Rossoneri's primary goal is to return to the Champions League.
We'll work to improve. And, yes, return to the Champions League,
" Pioli told Corriere della Sera. "
The club hasn't asked for anything, they don't want to pressure us
"Maldini, Massara and Gazidis have put us in ideal working conditions: they're extraordinary. But we are all aware we must do everything to bring Milan back to where it should be, in the Champions League.
"It's been missing for too long, that's our place and we can do it."
Milan coach said the Rossoneri have found 'enthusiasm' in a great year and hailed the example set by January signings Simon Kjaer and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
There's enthusiasm now, there's seriousness and compactness,
" he added. "
There's no longer a need to hang the table on the wall, everyone knows what to do
"The group is strong, united and proud. Those who arrived last January, Ibrahimovic and Kjaer, set an example and that helped us turn things around."
