Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he did not know Milan were keeping Stefano Pioli. ‘You learn something new here every day.’
Ibrahimovic was speaking after he scored twice in a 2-1 win at Sassuolo, which secured Milan a place in at least the qualifying rounds of next season’s Europa League.
“We won a difficult match against a team who play good football and we came here to win,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“We’re doing beautiful things, but the season isn’t over yet. We’re still vying for our objective. We want fifth place, but qualifiers are fine too.”
The striker was then asked about his future and whether he knew anything about the club’s decision to stick with Pioli.
“I still have three games and 10 days left here, but no-one’s told me anything and I don’t expect anything else.
“I didn’t know anything [about Pioli]. You learn something new here every day.
“I’m working, the team feel good and are happy. Since I’ve been here, the table says we should be second.”
