AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli has confirmed they’re seeking a new defensive signing.
Pioli admits they’re seeking a replacement for Simon Kjaer, who is out for the season with a knee injury.
“Kjaer’s injury forces us to focus on the defence, but I have not made any other requests, as I think the squad is complete like this,” explained Pioli.
“We are looking for a complete defender, someone able to deal with the one-on-one situations, courageous and good at building out from the back. I am sure we’ll find the right player.”
Milan meet Roma and the coach continued: “The Christmas break helped us rest and work in training, and although some players aren’t at 100 per cent, they will be soon.
“We want to win as many games as possible and pick up more points than last season, so that means a second half of the campaign at a very high tempo. Does we start chasing down Inter from tomorrow? Yes.
“I see a team that is hungry and we created this pressure on ourselves because we are ambitious. We need to prove ourselves in every game.”
