CorSera: Why Pioli has not worked much on tactics with Milan so far

By Oliver Fisher -

Stefano Pioli has not paid much attention to tactics in his few days as AC Milan head coach so far, according to a report.

The Rossoneri sacked Marco Giampaolo last week after just 111 days in charge – the shortest reign of any manager in the club’s history.

The club then confirmed the appointment of Pioli via a statement on their official website less than 24 hours later, despite protests from fans.

The former Lazio, Inter and Fiorentina boss began work at Milan’s training centre last Wednesday, but according to today’s edition of il Corriere della Sera – as cited by – the focus has not been on tactics.

Instead, the paper claims that in his first few days at Milanello, Pioli has worked more on reprogramming the squad psychologically rather than technically.

The Rossoneri players have to think less when they are on the pitch because in football if you think too much you are wrong, the report concludes.
