Tomorrow Juve-Milan, Pioli: “We just have to react.” And he announces: “Leao will be captain”

With the derby over, it’s time for Milan to return to the pitch tomorrow in the very delicate match at the Allianz Stadium against Juventus (kick-off at 6pm). The day before, the Rossoneri coach held a press conference Stefano Pioli he analyzes the moment like this: “What is the point of these last matches? We want to demonstrate who we are, that we are Milan. What is needed tomorrow? We will have to fight, give our all, as if it were the last match: be concentrated, determined. We want to defend the second place”.

What days were they?
“We cannot stop at recent disappointments, we must necessarily have the desire and pride to seek redemption. To remain united and fight until the end. We are professionals, we too suffer from this situation but we have the duty to get up and have broad shoulders “.

Do you think the team gave everything? “Yes, he gave everything; but we didn’t always put our best qualities on the pitch. Inter has been the strongest team in the championship for four years and has won two championships, we have never been the strongest and we fought, giving everything mentally. We weren’t always able to raise our level of play.”

Have the last ten days been the most difficult of your management? And will Leao be captain with Juve?
“In these almost five years there have been very negative moments, like this one. It is also the closest and therefore, for me, it is also the most painful. I would give everything I have to change the results of the derbies, but it can’t be done I for one know that it’s part of my job. He’s going through it like all of us, it was a big pain for everyone to just react.”
