Pioli believes ‘concomitance of events’ was behind Milan’s ‘fantastic’ support last season

By Oliver Fisher -

Head coach Stefano Pioli has once again praised the AC Milan fans for the part they played in helping the team win the Scudetto last season.

Milan upset the odds in many ways by emerged as the champions during the 2021-22 campaign. Not many people had the Diavolo down as serious contenders to win the league, but they showed their spirit throughout the season and ultimately put together a run of six straight wins to end the season.

Pioli spoke yesterday evening at the ‘House of BMW’ event in which he participated together with Ettore Messina – the coach of Olimpia Milano who are champions of Italy in the basketball league.

As reported by Tuttosport, the Milan coach in particular focused on the support that the Rossoneri received from the fans throughout last season, as they travelled in their thousands (sometimes more) around the country to support the team.

“The fans were fantastic. There was a concomitance of events in our path. We hadn’t won for a long time. The fact that we didn’t start favourites, we are a very young team and our way of playing also involved them. Playing at San Siro was a fundamental aspect that will give even more confidence to the whole team during this season,” he said (via MilanNews).

On the pressures of management, he added: “We are always under scrutiny. We play every three days and we have daily balances. I feel at ease to get to a result. I honestly believe I have a balance that allows me to isolate myself. I can’t worry too much about what is said outside. I think there is little balance, both for good and for bad. I try to maintain great confidence in my players, always.”
