Milan’s Stefano Pioli previews Roma showdown at San Siro

Andy Mattioli

Milan manager Stefano Pioli spoke to the media ahead of a crucial match with Mourinho’s Roma at San Siro stadium on Sunday night.

The Italian technician discussed the Giallorossi’s main strengths and spoke about his team’s injury woes.

“Roma are a strong and complete team. They combine organization with offensive qualities. They beat Inter, they lost at the last minute against Napoli and we will respect them a lot.”

“Tomorrow we’re going back to playing at San Siro and we’ll do it with enthusiasm, in honor of our fans. It’ll be the same team we saw at Salerno and I hope to also recover some of our injured players. De Keatalere is fine and I’m relying heavily on him.”

“Maignan? We have no timing for his recovery. I can’t say today if it will be in 2, 3, 4 or 5 weeks. Mike has all our support and is very eager to return, but he knows that we have to respect the timing because the calf muscle isn’t responding the way we expected it to.”

“Zaniolo? He certainly has great technical and physical potential. Whoever Roma decides to play up front tomorrow, it will be a strong team.”
