“We want to dedicate this victory to our fans because today’s reception was exciting, gave us responsibility and put pressure on us to transform ourselves into positive energy”

Stefano Pioli, head of AC Milan, said he had replaced Zlatan Ibrahimovic because he had asked to come out because of a cramp

Pioli told DAZN: “A striker depends on the team’s performance In the first half we struggled to get the players close to their box, even though we created some opportunities

“We scored more shots on goal in the second half with [Samir] Handanovic, who made some crucial saves. It was a difficult week, but we will react

“We weren’t too aggressive because we didn’t leave too much space for them and wanted to create two vs. two situations Your quality showed in the second half It’s not easy to win possession against them”

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is confident that his team will bounce back and react after a 3-0 defeat against rivals Inter Milan

Pioli said: “Our strength is balance We believe in our job We have to be objective A year or even three months ago we would have been happy to be where we are now

“Other than that, we’re not happy because this was the derby, we wanted more, but we mustn’t forget our way

“We haven’t done our best in the last three games and we know we can do a little more”We apologize for today’s defeat, but the bad game was against Spezia, not that. We tried to do our best today

“We are the only team that played the Europa League play-offs We had some injuries and some players played too much”It’s normal, we knew this season would have been difficult and so we have to be happy with what we’ve done so far

“It’s been a tough week, the worst of the season. We want to qualify for the next stage of the Europa League and then focus on Serie A again”
