Milan, Pioli: “We’re similar to Roma. Ibra won’t be available for tomorrow”.


Milan manager Stefano Pioli spoke to the club’s official website today ahead of tomorrow’s match against Roma, which will take place at the San Siro. Here’s what he had to say ahead of the affair:

Is tomorrow a direct confrontation between two even sides? Capello said there isn’t a 9-point gap between these teams despite what the table says.
I think we are similar to Roma, the table shows us as far away from them, though. We know their qualities and the difficulties this game presents. We have an opportunity to win and show our qualities on the pitch, we need to take advantage of this chance.

How’s Ibrahimovic doing?
He’s worked hard and he’s doing well, yesterday he took part in his first training session with his teammates. He’s not ready to play, he won’t be called up for the game tomorrow, perhaps the next one, though. Zlatan needs to work, so tomorrow he won’t be on the bench with us. Rebic has shown that he can do well even as a second striker, I can use him in all positions. He plays with great intensity.
