Milan-Spalletti: More contacts between the parties

36

LUCIANO SPALLETTI is the leading candidate to replace Clarence Seedorf; La Gazzetta are giving him a 50% chance.

Seedorf has been backed by several players but the management is not content with the way he’s handled things since replacing Allegri in January; Dorf said some things the officials didn’t like and conducted an interview without a permission.

It’s clear that Seedorf will not be coaching Milan next season and the official decision will be made at the end of the season, after the Sassuolo game next Sunday and they have a few men on the notebook that could replace the Dutchman.

If Seedorf is sacked, who could replace him?
Abbiati: “One of the worst Milan seasons I have had”

The new Milan coach: Spalletti with 50%, Donadoni and Inzaghi with 20% each, Montella with 10%, Conte and Seedorf with 0% (screenshot from today’s GdS)

According to today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Luciano Spalletti is in pole position to replace the 38-year-old Seedorf. Spalletti was sacked by Zenit St. Petersburg in March after working there since 2009. Spalletti’s contract expires in 2015 and it’s worth €4 million per year so if he arrived he’d have to make sacrifices as Milan cannot go beyond €2.5 mil.

La Gazzetta is reporting that last weekend, Vice President Adriano Galliani spoke on the phone with Spalletti again about the prospect of the former Roma coach arriving to Milan and the two are expected to meet later this week when Luciano arrives to Milano. The Italian newspaper claims that the negotiations between the sides are real but it’s too early to tell if it will be done. Milan will take a closer look at the new coach situation after the European elections (take place on May 25th).

The alternatives are always Roberto Donadoni and Filippo Inzaghi but the Italian media over the past two days has brought up the option that Milan could be looking to sign Antonio Conte who is reportedly set to leave Juventus this summer. It’s difficult to imagine that Conte, a three-time in a row Scudetto winner will go to Milan, who are unlikely to be in any European competition next season, but several newspapers and websites are running this story. Berlusconi and Galliani will look for a coach that is available and can be compatible with the squad and the club.

Spalletti is a dud. Should have got Inzaghi after Allegri but since Silvio thinks he knows best he should let Seedorf continue and see what he can get.

seems this is mainly down to wanting a more experience coach. well what is experience without talent? talents are not encouraged in italian football thats why their soccer is were it is now – clubs looking for mare experience players and coaches with their media backing them and they think only italian coaches are good. ranieri, conte, spalletti, mazzarri are all useless!!!!!!!!!

Talents are not encouraged in Italian football?
I disagree.
Italy is one of the best talents producers with Brazil and Argentina and Spain that just in the last decade emerged as a talent factory. The 4 World Cup stars in the FIGC patch is the approval stamp. Serie A can hold it’s own even if a foreign player transfer ban was imposed to it’s clubs.

I’ll lose hope for Milan if Spalletti will sign for us.
I’ve never had anything against him, I just… I can’t see him at Milan. Pippo or simply keep Seedorf, and considering that Galliani is so cheap, we’ll save 10 million. And then only four million will be left for us to buy out Taarabt and Rami.
What goes on in the respective heads of Berlu and Galliani are beyond me.
Seems like our only hope is Barbara talking some sense into his dad, as Galliani only listens to Berlu.

Spaletti and Ranieri are two Italian coaches who have failed multiple times at big clubs. I am happy with Seedorf and want to see what he can do when he has a pre-season to prepare for the next season.

I just read on Milanello twitter that Galliani is gonna announce that Mastour is gonna be a part of the first team next season, signing his first professional contract with us on his 16th birthday in June! As a fan, i really can’t wait to see him in action! I just hope the youth team coaches know what they are doing and is not rushing this

If Sedorf will be sacked ..what i hope wont happen ..i dont care who will be the next coach ..Donadoni , Montella ,Spaletti seems to be the same level ..only i hope they not gonna put Inzaghi into this mess as they did it to Sedorf ..SEDORF AND PIPO schould come when they r ready and when the squad is balanced

Dont forget my words that Sedorf will become one of the best coaches in a few years ..as Ancelotti or Simeone is

I say keep seedorf and save the money for something we need. IF seedorf is to be replaced that means Silvio have to use more money. But if he will not use more money and we are to get a new manager. than we would not have anything to spend on players. The little we have will go to seedorf. so sad.

Honestly, i prefer Pippo will take over next season to Spaletti or Donadoni or Montella, if seedorf has no chance to stay. we have a lot of youngsters who are ready to play in the higher level and pippo will be much know them better than anyone else. I forget how roma play under Spaletti but i just know that they didn’t win scudetto, just coppa italia twice and defeated 1-7 in old trafford against in CL in 2007. So, to B&G after you two waste seedorf, just give more chance to Pippo to revive milan.

Haha yes I forgot about Spalletti’s infamous 7-1 loss to Man U. What a joke of a coach.Thanks for reminding me.

We need to get ante coric. Really promising 16ye old croatian, plays for dinamo zagreb. He is also being targeted by barcalona but he has recently declared that he wants to join milan. He would be cheap and fit into our so called youth project. Doubt it will happen though..

This is going to be another flop transfer season. We need a coach who knows this team in charge of transfers. (Seedorf) Otherwise Galliani will just bring in more and more garbage. I’m tired of wasting my energy caring about this team. It’s emotionally draining.

Berlusconi, i’m disappointed in you, bro. This team was dead when Seedorf arrived, Seedorf gave it the Milan soul which was erroded away by allegri’s anti-milan philosophy. Allegri who was brought by galliani. If you fire Seedorf you are going to regret it very soon just like you did by confirming allegri and claiming that you were ‘doing whats best for milan’. Yes, you and the curva are not satisfied with how the team is perfoming but at least this team now has the spirit which it was lacking with allegri and that’s the most important step on which to… Read more »

Hiring Spalletti will be yet another in a long line of mistakes made by this “management” in recent years, but let’s face it, the coach is the least of our worries. If we haven’t bought a replacement goalkeeper by the start of next season and the team is full of players like Muntari, Essien, Bonera, Emmanuelson and Kevin Constant it really doesn’t matter who they bring in.

I think we are being punished. I dont know what we did guys. It will be a sad day when we lose Seedorf. Spalletti and donadoni are proven failures.

Con what? we dont want conte… imo,he is not that good a coach… he is just profiting on the mediocrity of the other teams. he failed woefully in Europe. Milan dont need him… would take a Seedorf with above average players over all those names brought up.

what did Donadoni do with Parma that Milan wants him? other top clubs go for top coaches with proven records of success … MAN UTD made a mistake with Moyes,are rectifying with Van Gaal,Real Madrid with Ancelotti, Chelsea with Mou, Liverpool with a their past position signed Rodgers but i am sure it will turn out to be a mistake next season, bayern with pep…even Roma signed Garcia who has a title with Lille…. why is Milan’s case different? why is berlusconi and uncle fester treating us fans like this?…
