Pioli was satisfied with back-to-back victories, as his side followed up the 3-0 win over rival


on Sunday.

“Two such difficult away games and two such important performances are a very important sign,”

Pioli told Sky Sport Italia


“We still need one more win and we have to think about the next one.”

The 55-year-old also insisted that the fight for the Champions League qualification is not over yet and they still need to work hard.

“Until you are up… Anything can happen uphill,”

he continued.

“Two weeks ago, they all said we were half dead, now we have the fate in our own hands.

“I asked the lads to play better than their opponents, because if you play better, you have a better chance of winning and we did.

“I always told the guys that I was lucky enough to coach not just any group, but a group that built itself.

“The club has always protected us, it’s good at Milanello. It’s a special group, the esteem and love they have for each other.

“We have been working for a year and a half and it shows, we will be able to celebrate only when we make it.”
