“I haven’t decided yet between Ibra and Giroud. Out Kessie and Rebic”

Welcome friends of SpazioMilan. Today we will follow the mister press conference live for you Pioli, scheduled for 2 pm. The Rossoneri coach presents the delicate away match tomorrow evening which will see his Milan engaged at Dall’Ara in Bologna to continue the march in the championship.

The press conference of Pioli

In recent years Bologna and Milan have had the same technicians: is it a comparison between projects?

In my opinion it means a lot: it’s a nice comparison between programs, ideas and growth. Bologna is a tough opponent with excellent qualities, they are changing the way they play“.

The post Porto reaction?

As always. We are focused on Bologna. We evaluated the mistakes made in Portugal and trained to improve. We will think about the Champions League later

How is Ibra?

It needs to play and grow. I have not yet decided for tomorrow between him and Giroud “

On recoveries

We recover Conti and Castillejo. Rebic won’t be there, ditto Kessie. He has a severe flu syndrome and he won’t be one of us

Milan are resisting in a complex period

I don’t think it’s a difficult time. We have a great staff and we will be ready for tomorrow. A tough game awaits us, we will be ready

Tomorrow you will celebrate the 100 benches

I did not know about this goal, I only think about work and tomorrow. I am very happy to be here but we have to think about the pitch. We talk too often about the future, the Champions League and more: it counts tomorrow

Did the players recover after Porto?

Yes, absolutely. We played a mediocre game in terms of ball management and defensive compactness

Could exiting the Champions League be an advantage?

Absolutely no. We can’t think like that, it’s not in our mentality. It is always better to leave on an impossible journey than to leave at all“.

How’s Tomori?

Well, it’s available. I decide tomorrow

Could Castillejo play?

“Samu is fine and could start from the beginning

Have you thought about the two tips?

At the moment it is not a viable solution due to the conditions of Ibra and Giroud. Pellegri will not be there tomorrow

The growth of Maldini

Daniel is strong and will be ready when needed

Calabria on the left?

Davide is an intelligent footballer, he can also play on the left. If I can, I’ll keep it right

Leao behind the tip?

Leao will play but not behind the striker

What Bologna do you expect?

I expect everything. With Lazio they left quickly, we have to be good at making them move

Is Milan back?

I am disappointed when we do not play at our level but ours is a team that knows how to recover quickly and return to certain levels
