Stefano Pioli was taken inattentive by Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta on Saturday night.
This is ostensibly the first run through of the period where the Rossoneri are totally overwhelmed by an adversary.
This is a significant accomplishment for the crew from Bergamo because of how great Pioli’s players have been all through the season.
As a total man of honor, Pioli chose to come out and give frantic props to Gasperini’s players for their presentation.
This is an extraordinary sign coming from a coach who infrequently met the essence of destruction this year.
An outcome that will permit AC Milan to learn and continue to develop as a crew this season.
“I think Atalanta are the only team we have been unable to beat. So clearly they make life difficult for us,”
“We had started well, put lots of players into attack. It’s disappointing the way we conceded the opener on a set play, then the second goal closed the game. We had time, but were unable to find a way back into the match.
“We could’ve done more, we knew that we had to defend more carefully and the marking was also not the best, but we could have intercepted the cross earlier too. Atalanta did better than us this evening, a defeat can happen against a strong team.
It’s disappointing, the second goal, as we just lost belief after that. It’s a very competitive league, we know it’s difficult, but we are up there at the top and we want to have our say.”confessed Pioli on Sky Sport Italia.
