CorSera: Pioli and Ibra pushing for the next step in Milan’s project – the Coppa provides a route

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will take to the field in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg tonight and the competition represents a chance for the team to finally get a trophy under Stefano Pioli.

This morning’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) recalls how Zlatan Ibrahimovic declared that he ‘won’t give up until I win something with this team’ while Pioli added in his pre-match press conference that the team ‘have sown a lot and now we need to reap’ and that ‘the last step is missing’.

The key word is to win because in football it is raising trophies that count and give the biggest indication of success, something Milan have not celebrated for too many years now. The turning point of the club is there for all to see as the Elliott project is serious and ambitious, but to give an acceleration there is nothing better than to win.

This is why the Coppa Italia assumes a fundamental meaning for Milan, as an alternative path to the Scudetto in terms of ending a five-year trophy drought. After the disappointing draws against Salernitana and Udinese, the Rossoneri must try to redeem themselves against Inter tonight and then in Naples on Sunday.

  1. Thankfully we have Ibra who is never satisfied and pushes everyone forward. I just hope we can get another true leader (not fake, like Kessie) that can continue after Kjaer and Ibra are gone.

  2. Giroud will be the man tonight …He is the man for for the big occasions …Technically he is brilliant…
    Yes it’s not all about speed ,but knowing where to be at the right moment ..The first three yards are in his head …His hold up play is brilliant ,sheer strength
    and beliefs are part of his attributes. Let’s believe in Olivier and AC Milan ..
