The signs of discontent among the AC Milan squad under Stefano Pioli are only growing but the coach still has a firm handle on the situation, a report claims.
As has been reported by Tuttosport (via Pianeta Milan), the anger that both Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao showed against Napoli when they were taken off by Pioli is a hint that all is not well in the dressing room right now.
Milan were top of Serie A just a month ago and all seemed well, but an increase in injuries and a drop in form both domestically and in Europe has seen the mood around the club sour.
Despite this, there is no suggestion that Pioli won’t be given the time and space to arrest this bad form. One key factor, though, is making it into the round of 16 of the Champions League, which looks to be a very tough task from here.
