Manchester United were able to overcome the threat that was posed by Ac Milan and cruise through the competition quarter finals. Ac-Milan coach Stefano Pioli shouts an X- rated rant to Man U Assistant coach after being dumped out of Europa.
After the game, tension threatened to boil. Stefano was left fuming after his team was knocked out in a game he felt his team gave its best and deserved to progress.
According to reports by Gazzetta Dello Sport, McKenna after the final whistle told Pioli “good team,” a statement by which Pioli took offense by.
According to Football Italia via Corriere dello Sport, Pioli was angered and responded: “Good team my a***.
“You are nothing but an a******. Your sister has a good team.”
Pioli felt really frustrated. His team had scored a crucial away goal during the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford but failed to score even a sine goal on their own ground.
Stefano while speaking on thursday he said: : “It’s an elimination that really disappoints us, because over the two legs we played like a great team and should’ve scored in the first half.
“It’s a pity, we did so much to get here and the team deserved to continue, but we had to give it a little bit more. I don’t think we deserved to go out.
“We are talking about a Manchester United that reached the Europa League semi-final last season, that was in the Champions league group phase this term and two weeks ago beat Manchester City 2-0.
“Over the two legs, we did so much right, but the two goals we conceded were more down to our own errors than their credit, that’s what is disappointing.
“It becomes difficult for me to reproach my lads after two performances with heart, spirit, determination, courage and quality.
“Now we have to get right back on track in Serie A.”
