The club is now focusing on the next challenge and have renewe their trust in the head coach. There is full confidence and even after a poorly played derby, ther is hope to regain form against the English club.
It is clear, however, that after the fifth consecutive city derby lost, with 12 goals conceded and only one useless goal scored, questions are beginning to be raised even at the higher levels of 'Casa Milan' about the matter. Pioli's Milan, against Sandro Tonali's former Newcastle, will be called upon for a prompt reaction: this challenge risks already having the outlines of 'in or out'.
This considering that the other opponents in Group F for the Devil will be Borussia Dortmund and PSG, who will be faced - both away - respectively on October 4 and 25. The blow in the derby risks leaving physical and mental scars on Milan, even though Pioli has dismissed these thoughts. What is certain is that the Devil must immediately resume the conversation with victory, started against Bologna, Torino, and Roma and then lost against Inter.
Starting from Newcastle. Also because, then, there will be new direct clashes against Lazio and Juventus in addition to the aforementioned Champions League matches.
Yesterday, Pioli decided not to scold his team. No reprimands, just a discussion. He chose to support his players and lift them up, thus avoiding a process that would probably have done more harm than good. Geoffrey Moncada was also present at Milanello, representing the club, to make the players feel the closeness of the management. In Milan-Newcastle, everyone wants to start off with a bang: perhaps something will change in the lineup, but this time it will be the spirit that will matter on the field.
