Pioli names four things Milan will take into next season and makes Donnarumma declaration

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli believes the team will take a number of qualities into next season, regardless of if he is at the helm.

The Rossoneri been in fantastic form recently, winning six out of eight in the league since the resumption including their most recent victory being a 5-1 win over Bologna at San Siro on Saturday night.

There were five different scorers on the night as Alexis Saelemaekers, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ismael Bennacer, Ante Rebic and Davide Calabria all netted – a testament to how a team effort has contributed to the Diavolo’s recent climb.

Pioli spoke to reporters before the trip to another in-form side in Sassuolo, and his words were transcribed by MilanNews.

He was asked about what his team will take forward into next season, amid the ongoing rumours that Pioli will be replaced by Ralf Rangnick.

“The mentality, the desire to play matches, the desire to try to be masters of those games and the awareness of one’s qualities,” he said.

There will be an important milestone for Donnarumma as he is set to reach 200 appearances for Milan against the team where it all started.

“It is an important moment, Gigio must have ambition and continue to work as he is doing and, if possible even more. He has the potential to become the best in the world, he has all the technical and moral qualities to be truly a great person.”
