AC Milan coach Pioli: This team good enough to beat anyone

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli insists his team is as good as any in the country - at their best.

Pioli was delighted with their weekend win over Roma.

“It takes time to develop, it took work and sacrifice to bring through our ideas," he said at a press conference. “We have an important tour de force with 30 points available.

“We have to keep focused. The substitutes will be crucial in every game, and the fact that we have five subs gives us more solutions.

“We are not happy with our position in the table, we can beat anyone."

He added: “(Hakan) Calhanoglu has the quality to be decisive in the final outcome. He can become a top player, not just an excellent one.

“(Gigio) Donnarumma must keep the team alive and attentive, he is progressing a lot on this aspect. He's among the top two or three goalkeepers in the world."
