Pioli lements costly errors in his team's loss to Chelsea

Stefano Pioli believes that his team have themselves to blame for their loss to Chelsea in the UCL.

Pioli believes that his side made costly elementary errors that were unpardonable.

Chelsea opened the scoring through Wesley Fofana while Aubameyang also got Chelsea their second.

Reece James on the other hand sent in a bullet to crown Chelsea’s 3-0 win over AC Milan.

Pioli lamented his side’s mistakes, saying teams in the Champions League will always punish you.

“Errors? It is true that they cannot be committed in the Champions League,” he told reporters. “We forced choices that weren’t forced. We have lost our distance. It is a pity because, beyond their qualities, we could have done something more. 

“It has nothing to do with little experience, it has nothing to do with those who were not there. We had to be more lucid, in ball recovery and aggression, we had to do better.

“The second goal changed our attitude, our mentality. We weren’t able to stay as a team as we usually do. At these levels you pay dearly for these things.”

He added on Sky Sports: “We had to do better. It’s clear that when you make so many technical mistakes you allow opponents to put you in difficulty. 

“I think the team was ready to play this type of match. There were spaces to be more precise and we gave too much field to the opponents. 

“Defeats must help us grow. The locker room was rightly disappointed and angry, but this will give us great motivation and drive.”
