Stefano Pioli once again has the task of galvanising his team after another disappointing result, one that the management was not best pleased with.
Milan missed the chance to make it five league wins in a row as they drew 2-2 with Bologna at San Siro on Saturday night, with Riccardo Orsolini striking the dagger blow from the penalty spot in added time.
As written in Pietro Mazzara’s latest column for MilanNews, Pioli admitted in his post-match press conference that he is worried about the ‘psychological repercussions’ that the draw with Bologna could have on the team.
Today at Milanello it will be his turn to speak to the players, but the presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic will also be needed, who can and must be a point of reference in these situations.
Mazzara adds that the Milan management were not best pleased with the result at the weekend, because they ‘legitimately hoped’ to be able to continue the trend of victories and also close the gap to Juventus.
However, this did not happen and the feeling is that it will be a long time to get to May, sailing in third place and with the obligation to do very well in the Europa League.
Otherwise the 2023-24 season would be ‘a sporting failure’ in terms of results, with only the bare minimum achieved.
