“We’ll work to improve. And, yes, return to the Champions League,” Pioli said. “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.”

Pioli said Milan have discovered 'enthusiasm' in an incredible year and commended the model set by January arrivals

“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."
