Tuttosport: Pioli’s motivational speech to Milan squad ahead of Napoli clashes

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will face Napoli three times in just 16 days, starting with tonight’s league encounter at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. And after a tough period, Stefano Pioli hopes this can help the Rossoneri rise again. 

Milan are fighting for a spot in the top four after what has been a disappointing 2023, at least in the league. In the Champions League, on the other hand, they will face Napoli in the quarters and Benfica/Inter in the semi-finals, should they go through.

As highlighted by Tuttosport, as cited by MilanNews, it will be an intense April for the Rossoneri. They must find the confidence they had last season and at the start of this one, otherwise it could be very tough.

The newspaper also brought up the words of Pioli from yesterday’s press conference: “I told the boys that nothing has changed. A year ago nobody believed in us, now few believe in us, few believe that we can get past the quarter-finals in the Champions League, that we can reach the top four in Italy. It’s a season that can become glorious.”

Tonight’s game will be an important starting point for Milan, not just to find their form but also to gather as much information and leverage on Napoli as possible.
