Stefano Pioli Happy with Incredible Result against Atalanta


Stefano Pioli claims that he is delighted with the 7-1 win over Atalanta during the weekend.

It was one of the most impressive performances by the club in recent years, as they significantly boosted their goal difference as a result of this win.

More importantly, this victory keeps Inter Milan in the hunt for the top three places, which will be able to provide Champions League football for the club. Qualifying for the premier European competition remains the ultimate ambition for the club, and it is also important for the club’s new owners and their plans for the Italian outfit.

After being recently taken over by Chinese owners, Inter Milan are expected to invest heavily in the transfer market. However, players will be able to take the club seriously only if they are back in the Champions League.

The club has gone through several troubles over the last few years. Incredibly, they managed to win the competition only back in 2010 when they were managed by Jose Mourinho. After the match,Pioli claimed that it was an exceptional result but one that was always on the cards given the hard work that they put into training. Atalanta came into the game keen to maintain their position ahead of Inter. Mauro Icardi and Ever Banega scored two hat-tricks to seal the win.

"This was an exceptional performance where everything we practised worked perfectly. It was a game of a high level and we did well to make it look easy, because Atalanta are a tough opponent and had conceded very few goals until now.It was a good result, but what really counts is our position in the table and that means the next match is always the most important. We are chasing very, very strong opponents but we have to try to win as many games as possible,” said Pioli.
