Stefano Pioli sees AC Milan progress

The Rossoneri remain in the bottom half of the Serie A standings after being edged out by the visitors from the capital, but Pioli was far from downhearted by the performance of his team.
He told Sky Sport Italia: "In my view the team is improving. Of course, for the table and the situation it was important to try and win, but the performance was there.
"I believe we are on the right path now. All we can do is keep improving along these lines.
"We've got to realise that this team has the quality. We might not have great champions, but everyone has quality and we can achieve something if we have the spirit of unity."
Milan have tough league games to look forward to either side of the upcoming international break, with a visit from Napoli on the schedule for Saturday 23rd November.
However, first up next weekend is a trip to Turin to take on Juventus, who are currently top of Serie A as they chase a ninth successive Italian league title.
Juve have won all of the last seven meetings between the two sides and are 1.44 to extend that run to eight victories next weekend.

The 52-year-old former Inter Milan boss most recently coached Fiorentina and he is AC Milan's eighth coach since Massimiliano Allegri led the club to their last Serie A title in 2011.
Pioli, who resigned as Fiorentina coach in April, has coached in Italy for 16 years and has also been in charge of Bologna and Lazio.
