AC Milan's Paolo Maldini spoke to the microphones of Sky Sport Italia after the match against Lazio in which the Rossoneri lost 4-0 at the Olimpico stadium. Here are the words of the technical area director:
"If the confidence remains in Pioli? This is a question which I was hoping not to hear. I have to answer you yes, because honestly after what has been done, this question seems really..."
"If this worries me? They don't worry me, we dominated against Roma and they were undeservedly drawn. It is very clear that from a technical, tactical and psychological point of view it is not our best moment."
"We are second, I remind you. After 7 years the team qualified for the Champions League two years ago, won the Scudetto last year deservedly, and is now second and I understand the criticism. The team comes out with the usual things, with compactness. The facts say that the team isn't playing well, it's not in a great psycho-physical condition, but it's there."
On the mercato:
"The teams want to strengthen themselves, but we won't budge from our ideas of recent years. Don't expect signings like English teams or some Italian teams."
"If I will talk with Pioli? We talk every day, we have the opportunity to talk before and after training. We are disappointed, we have lost the chance to get to 2 of the 4 competitions we could have reached. Napoli are having a fantastic championship, if they score another 50 points no one will take away the Scudetto."
