Krzysztof Piątek has said he’s never gone six games without scoring but is only thinking about the Champions League.
Milan beat Frosinone 2-0 at Stadio San Siro earlier today to secure a place in one of Europe’s competitions next season, but the Champions League qualification is still not in the hands of the Rossoneri.
After a bad first half and a penalty save by Gigio Donnarumma, Milan woke up and won thanks to goals from Krzysztof Piątek (57′) and Suso (66′). The Polish scored for the first time since Matchday 31.
“The most important thing for me is the team, not today’s goal,” Piątek told MilanTV. “Now we wait for the Juventus match, which in case of a positive result could bring us closer to the Champions League. Return to scoring? I went through a difficult period, I’d never had 5-6 games without scoring. I’ve always been concentrated in training and in matches. Today the goal was important.
“SPAL? I hope we can go into the Champions League, against SPAL we’ll play for everything. The kilometers ran in each game? We must always be together, also in difficulties. It’s normal for me to run a lot, also so I can help the team. What I told Abate at the end of the game? I congratulated Ignazio because he had an incredible career at Milan [Abate played his last San Siro game].
“The moment of Genoa [who are in the relegation zone and might play in Serie B next season]? I’m sorry, but I hope they can save themselves on the last Matchday.”
