Davide Calabria’s post-match words and above all the response from Stefano Pioli sparked some controversy after AC Milan’s 3-0 defeat to PSG. However, the two parties cleared the misunderstanding immediately, a report claims.
After the game, which was disappointing to say the least for the Rossoneri, Calabria was very honest in his post-match interview. He admitted that there was both a ‘tactical and mental problem’, and also stated that ‘those you don’t believe in it can stay at home’.
Pioli wasn’t too happy with the words, defending the captain by saying that players often lack clarity immediately after a game, but also making it clear that full-back ‘was wrong’. As reported by Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, the two have already moved on from the incident.
They spoke to each other afterwards and as a result, the mutual respect was ‘strengthened’. In other words, there was no controversy but simply a misunderstanding and Milan are already focused on the clash against Napoli on Sunday.
