AC Milan coach Pioli hoping for more from Leao

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli is hoping for better from Rafael Leao.

The striker has had an interrupted preseason.

“I hope to have Leao back as soon as possible," Pioli said at a press conference. “But it's difficult to make predictions.

“He is young, so maybe he can recover quickly.

“He has to put his qualities on the pitch, he has great qualities," Pioli said. “He must play with the team and make a difference; he can do it.

“Last year was his first season in a different League. I expect convincing evidence from him."
