AC Milan coach Pioli: A lesson to learn from Napoli defeat

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli says defeat to Napoli was a wake-up call for his players.

Milan suffered their first defeat in 22 Serie A rounds on Sunday evening.

“We are trying to improve our level even more after last season, but Serie A is a well-balanced league and everyone has levelled up with reinforcements, so we want to stay in the group fighting for the title to the end," said Pioli during the Torneo Nereo Rocco event.

“Our performance against Napoli was of a high level, but the fact we didn't pick up points means we can and must do better in some situations."

Pioli also said: “I do feel at home at Milan, and when you feel at home, you don't want to even consider other options. We have many things still to do, but I am absolutely not worried about my contract or my future.

“Milan's objective is to be competitive and to win silverware. We want to continue improving, as we remain a young side, but have the confidence that can allow us to aim for the top."
