Stefano Pioli believes his AC Milan side dominated and deserved their 0-1 win over Parma.

AC Milan and Stefano Pioli got a much-needed victory, with 0-1 win of Parma, courtesy of a Theo Hernandez goal.

Its been a tough start to his career at AC Milan, but while Stefano Pioli is under no illusions, he feels that today’s victory may be a turning point.

While his statistical claim maybe a little exaggerated they were clearly the team with more of the ball and more of an attacking prowess.

Speaking to Sky Sports Italia, this game meant a lot to Pioli as he feels the fact that the result complements the performance for once is significant.

He said:

“We had over 25 attempts on goal today, but we were clear today, the team knew how important the game was.”

“We were coming off a good performance, albeit not good results, and it was time to bring home the victory.”

” We dominated possession, shots on goal, showed intelligence and determination, so we deserved it.”

He is still well aware of the work that still needs to be done.

Pioli added:

“At the same time, we must be realistic, as one game doesn’t fix everything.”
