AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli pleased with victory against Salernitana

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli was happy with their 2-0 win against Salernitana.

Franck Kessie and Alexis Saelemaekers struck for the Rossonero.

“I am satisfied with a good performance, a decent victory, because some assumed this could be taken for granted," Pioli told DAZN.

“It would've been better if we had scored more goals, especially considering how many chances we created, but the team showed maturity, consistency and growth. I liked the way we controlled the game and continued to create chances, despite running very few risks."

Pietro Pellegri had his first start, but limped off after just 15 minutes, while Rafael Leao went off at half-time.

“Rafa got a knock and his muscle hardened, so we preferred not the risk it. He is very much at ease on the left wing, difficult to mark in one-on-one situations, but he needs to push even more and use his pace.

“We moved well on and off the ball to create numerous scoring opportunities."
