The Rossoneri coach in a press conference before Chelsea: “Two teams who love attacking football will face each other. Their quality is high”
“I know Potter because I watched Brighton games last season. They played well ”. Pioli’s phrase is not obvious – how many A coaches were watching Brighton? -and makes the character understand: passionate about this game and his work. His vision of Chelsea-Milan is therefore this: “Two teams that love offensive football will face each other. Their quality is high. Chelsea will have a strong, rhythmic approach ”.
The captain tomorrow will be Ismael Bennacer, somewhat surprisingly. Without Calabria, Theo, Kjaer, Rebic, he is first in seniority and has consideration in the locker room: “Ismael is a technical leader and sets an example: he trains and participates 100% every day. He surely he is a leader ”. With him and his unprecedented band, Milan will try to take another step towards the second round: “The team is improving a lot, the club has made precise choices, with many young players mixed with more experienced players. And with young people it takes patience ”.
Olivier Giroud, alongside Pioli, made his debut in the new Off White clothing: a very young white jacket, very far from the habits of Italian clubs. Particular image. “I’m lucky to be back at Stamford Bridge,” he said. I want to show how strong Milan are. I told my teammates how proud I am to be here with Milan, there will be a great match. The field is wonderful and I hope they will welcome me well ”. If one day he returns to Milan with another shirt, well, have no doubts.
