In an interview with Sky Italia, as quoted by Milan News, Pioli says that qualifying for next season’s Champions League will be his focus.

“Disappointment, and with disappointment, we don’t go that far,” Pioli said.

“The latest performances see us in difficulty, this must push me to understand that certain situations need to be improved and faced differently. Our goal will be to reach the Champions League, this will be our goal.”

AC Milan are in fourth position in the Serie A standings after amassing 38 points from 20 matches.

Next up for AC Milan is a derby fixture with Inter Milan on February 5 at the San Siro Stadium.
