AC Milan midfielder Krunic happier under Pioli than Giampaolo

AC Milan midfielder Rade Krunic says he's happier under Stefano Pioli than former coach Marco Giampaolo.

Krunic found himself on the outer with Giampaolo in charge.

He said, “I feel a lot better. But I didn't feel bad previously either, I just couldn't give 100 percent and I didn't want to risk getting a more serious injury.

“I'm sorry for Giampaolo, he is a coach that needs a lot of time to implement his style of football.

“Now with Pioli, we are more determined. I feel his football suits our characteristics better.

“My dream was to play for Milan, not just be there. I have only just achieved my dream.

“It will be so much better when the wins are coming, we need more points to get back up the table.

“We still believe [in the Champions League. We need to believe, because we are Milan. Like I said, we need a big game to wake up.

“We are eight points behind fourth place, which is not a lot. There are still many games to be played."
