Ac Milan Coach Stefano Pioli was interviewed by DAZN after the 1-1 against Udinese where Frank Kessie scored an equalizer at the death.
On Kessie saying Milan lost two points:
“The team wanted the win, we knew that we would find it difficult against a Udinese team that defends with everyone at the back of the ball ”.
On the team conviction:
“We lacked quality and rhythm during the match, there was determination but lack of clarity ”.
On the reaction after the goal:
“The team worked hard to find space but Udinese plays a very defensive game, there were lots of duels we lost. We only managed to win a duel during the first half when Castillejo almost scored”.
“Rafa has characteristics more suitable for attacking spaces but when he is marked tightly he does not yet have the shrewdness to anticipate the defender. Today we lacked the right characteristics to face this type of match, we lacked the two real strikers (Ibra and Mandzukic) in the squad. Leao and Rebic have other characteristics.”.
On Tonali’s Injury situation:
“Tonali came out as a precaution because he felt a slightly different flexor than the other”
On Donnarumma’s error:
“We haven’t talked yet, he has saved us many times. Now it’s time to focus on the next match”.
On Ibra on the bench:
“He did not come out satisfied with this match, like everyone else”.
