Following the big defeat against Inter, the AC Milan management joined the squad in the locker room. During his post-match press conference, Stefano Pioli revealed what they said.
It was a humiliating defeat for the Rossoneri in yesterday’s derby and the players were visibly disappointed after the final whistle. In the locker room, the Milan management also joined the squad.
Speaking at the press conference after the game, as cited by MilanNews, Pioli was asked about the presence of the management. He stated that they offered their support after what was a tough game.
“The management was there to give us support, we can’t go home with our heads held too high,” he stated.
Milan will take on Newcastle in the Champions League on Tuesday and will need to shift focus to that clash immediately. It might be easier said than done, though, given how much the derby means in the city.
Bouncing back with a win would be an important signal not just from the players, but above all Pioli who has been heavily criticised since last night.
