By Obiajulu Chiagoziem

A.C. Milan’s head manager, Stefano Pioli is very optimistic about his club winning the Seria A league trophy. He has therefore encouraged his players to dream of lifting the trophy as they maintain a very good start this season.

Milan presently maintain a good form despite their loss to Liverpool in the champions league group match.

Yesterday, the Rossoneri defeated the Atalanta at their home as they sit second on the league’s table at a 19 points in 7 fixtures.

Speaking about his team’s readiness to pursue the trophy, Pioli said: “We have to play to win every single game, we played with quality and energy,”

Milan has been searching for their first Serie A crown since 2010-11.

“This test closes a positive period in which the team has always responded, even in Champions League defeats. It means we are growing”, Pioli continued

“Is Tonali talking about the Scudetto? It’s right that the guys ride this dream, at every game we have the chance to show that we can compete.

“It’s a two-year journey, but now we must not be satisfied, but remaining humble and respecting our opponents. Tonight we did well what we missed in the first half hour against Liverpool, we were very dynamic.”

Franck Kessie, former Atalanta player who has just 1 year left on his contract in Milan also heaped praises on Pioli’s efforts for the team to be better.

“[I] never had doubts about Franck’s behaviour, the contract events exist but he played an amazing game,” Pioli said about Franck Kessie.

“[It was a] high level from everyone, but his, in particular, was an excellent race from a physical and technical point of view. He remains a regular member of this team, but like other members of the squad.”he concluded.

A.C. Milan’s next league fixture is at home in San Siro, where they will be taking on Hellas Verona in their continuous pursuit for the league trophy.
