Former Milan hero Demetrio Albertini has claimed Stefano Pioli has ‘shown that he deserves’ the job at San Siro.
Pioli was confirmed until June 2022 after the win against Sassuolo and Albertini spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport about the appointment.
“He has shown that he deserves the Milan job,” Albertini said. “Pioli’s main merit is having regrouped the team in their most delicate moment.
“When the confidence wanes in the current season, it’s easy for the dressing room to fall apart in a heartbeat. The risks were high for Pioli.
“The lockdown could have ruined everything, but instead he has brought out the best. Well done.
“But the players have shown maturity too. And of course [technical director Paolo] Maldini has helped a lot.”
