One of the positives from the preseason campaign was that the goals very much came in bunches for Stefano Pioli’s side.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes that Stefano Pioli’s side of course want to keep their defensive solidity, but in the new season Milan also want to improve their attacking numbers after being the fourth-best attack in the last season.
Pioli wants more goals from the team, especially taking into account what his players create, but after netting 17 goals in five preseason games the signs are good. Olivier Giroud scored four times, Rafael Leao led from the front but other protagonists emerged such as Ante Rebic and Junior Messias, each of whom scored three times.
Then, there are pieces that must enter the fold like Charles De Ketelaere who yesterday in the friendly against Pergolettese at Milanello got a hat-trick, with Yacine Adli also looking good in preseason, plus Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Divock Origi to return from injury.
