Pioli received honorary citizenship at Noceto on Monday morning.
â€œI am proud to receive this recognition that makes me even closer to my territory and city," said Pioli.
â€œI can only be happy with the many compliments received. I share them with the club and a group of players who have always given their best. They've always believed in them, in their qualities and their coach.
â€œThe team hold on in difficult moments, giving us great satisfaction. For this reason, the title must be a starting point. We know we accomplished something important, especially for a group of fans that hadn't seen their team win for a long time."
