Milan boss couldn’t be happier with Milan’s performance so far this season.

Milan

has experienced their best start in the Serie A since 1954, and their boss

Stefano Pioli

is proud of his men for their impressive performance, despite their struggles with injuries, and he has talked about that after their 1-0 victory against Torino.

“It was our fourth game in 10 days with very little option for rotation and Torino are very tough to play against,”

Pioli told DAZN

.

“We controlled it well, kept a lid on it, then Torino only really threatened towards the end when they threw caution to the wind and poured everything forward.”

The Rossoneri have won nine of their first ten games in Serie A, and Pioli thinks that it is something to celebrate, considering the number of injuries that they have been facing since the beginning of the season.

“I know and appreciate these lads so much. Torino are in great shape, playing good football, we went a bit too deep in the second half, but even then barely ran any risks other than from set plays.

“If we want to play a certain type of football, we need intensity. Naturally, it’s tough to train now with games every three days, but we accepted tonight was a battle of various duels around the field and we won some, lost others.

“There was a difficult moment in the second half, but we came together and took home three very important points.

“Torino were very aggressive, we should’ve moved them more with our midfielders and create spaces for the full-backs to go forward, but it was a struggle. Sometimes it’s right in these complicated, difficult and important situations to just get the job done.”
