AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli feels that he has improved as a coach since his time when he was in charge of Inter.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of tomorrow evening’s Supercoppa Italiana clash between the Rossoneri and the Nerazzurri, as reported by FCInterNews, the coach reflected on his two spells in charge on both sides of the Milan derby divide.

Pioli, who has also coached the likes of Bologna, Lazio, and Fiorentina in Serie A, has really come into his own since taking charge at Milan.

The Rossoneri won the Serie A title last season, the culminating achievement for a team who seem to have gotten better and better with each passing season under the guidance of Pioli.

This is in contrast to the coach’s tenure at the Nerazzurri, where he was not exactly a total failure but hardly experienced the kind of success that Antonio Conte or Simone Inzaghi have, for example.

From Pioli’s perspective, however, he has grown a lot to get to the point where he is now, winning the title with Milan.

“I’ve improved a lot as a coach compared to then,” the coach said of his time as Nerazzurri coach.

Looking to tomorrow’s match, Pioli noted that “We’ll have to be as compact as possible if we hope to win.”
