Milan faced Nice in their third pre-season friendly last night and although their performance wasn’t fantastic, the game ended 1-1. There is still some work to do, but now the players will enjoy some rest.
After a week of training at Milanello, and taking part in the game last night, Stefano Pioli has granted his players the day off. According to MilanNews, training will resume tomorrow afternoon.
Milan’s next friendly is scheduled for Wednesday evening and the opponents are Valencia. The feeling is that it will be even tougher than last night’s clash, which is why the Rossoneri need to be at their best.
Of course, the pre-season is there to get the players into shape and each result should be taken with a pinch of salt. Above all, it’s an opportunity for Pioli to test some new ideas and evaluate some of the players that have an uncertain future.
