Pioli responds to provocation over Romagnoli: “Raiola does his job, I do mine”

By Oliver Fisher -

Stefano Pioli has issued a response to agent Mino Raiola after some provocative comments were made by him ahead of the game against Juventus.

A little over 24 hours before the big match at Allianz Stadium between the two sides, the agent of Milan’s captain decided to talk about the idea of going on a free transfer to a rival.The timing of the statements and the fact Raiola chose to say what he did says a lot about how he operates, and it has no doubt caused a stir in the offices of Casa Milan.

Pioli spoke to the reporters who gathered at the Milanello conference room to answer their questions ahead of what is a huge early-season clash and he was asked about what Raiola said, with his comments relayed by MilanNews and translated below.

“On Bakayoko I am proud to be part of a club that fights on the front line against discrimination. Raiola does his job, I do mine. I can agree with Raiola that Romagnoli is a great defender, I will send all those who play on the pitch that are motivated and available to fight for this shirt, and at the moment they are all in this direction.”
