Kalulu reveals Pioli’s main qualities

Milan defender Pierre Kalulu urges the Rossoneri to return to winning ways at home and reveals Stefano Pioli’s main qualities.

Milan beat Parma 2-1 away last weekend, but their last victory at the San Siro is dated back to February 7 when they trashed Crotone 4-0.

“It’s important that we start winning games at home, not a single win in two months isn’t normal, and we will do everything in our power to solve this problem on Sunday,” Kalulu told Milan TV.

“It won’t be easy because Genoa are a hard team to play against. Winning at home again is our goal.”

Kalulu joined Milan from Lyon as a free agent last summer.

“I think I can only improve. When you play at a high level you’re always learning, you take new information and you make progress. I try to improve and it’s great if people notice it,” the defender said.

“The first season is very important, everything is new even though the ball and the pitch are the same, the first season is something special.

I think I’ve had a good first season. I was able to get a lot of playing time and play in two different positions and important games. It’s been good,” he continued.

“Whether it’s in training or games, our squad has a lot of character, strength reactivity, willpower; also, our squad is united even in difficult moments. We can look at each other and say: ‘Today, we are going to do it.’ I think we were able to show this in Parma.”

Stefano Pioli has helped the French defender to settle in.

“For me, his main quality is that he is close to his players. It’s difficult to be close to everyone when the squad has 23 or 25 players,” Kalulu claimed.

“I think he does it well. He’s able to convey his passion and his emotions on and off the pitch. Ha makes you believe in yourself. He knows how to say what he expects from us, and we can grasp it.”
