AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli was delighted with their 2-0 defeat to Venezia.
Theo Hernandez jumped from the bench to assist the Brahim Diaz goal and score the second himself, set up by another substitute, Alexis Saelemaekers.
“Breaking the deadlock is important, as it means Venezia cannot just sit behind the ball, but we cannot be frenetic. We lacked a bit of quality and precision in the first half, but with the right intensity and determination, we found a way through," Pioli told DAZN
“I knew the work we'd done last season would pay off this term, as it's a process and sooner or later they were always going to reach these levels.
“We won many games last season, but in my view the thing we have more now is that we have matured and also have support from the fans that last season we were lacking. Our objective is to improve our home record from last season, and I think we can do that with the help from our supporters at San Siro.".
