MILAN – Here are Empoli coach Marco Giampaolo’s thoughts after his side’s opening day defeat at home to Chievo in round 1 of Serie A. Empoli are Milan’s next opponents in Serie A.
“We have to remember that we have restarted from scratch. There is a new squad, with different players in a changed Serie A. There is a new chapter to be written. Comparisons with Sarri? I am expecting them and I am ready for these types of discussion. We have to keep in mind what our objective is and focus solely on that. The rest has little significance for us. It’s important to continue on our path without being influenced by outside factors. In one way or another, we have to avoid relegation. Over the course of a season there will always be hard moments, even the big teams have them. We must deal with them in the right manner.”
