MAURO TASSOTTI has hinted he could leave the club and he’s expected to be Massimiliano Allegri’s assistant coach.
The coaching staff could be set for a major change as both first team coach Clarence Seedorf and his assistant Mauro Tassotti appear to be set to leave Milan. Now that the 13/14 season is over, it’s time for the future of the two to be resolved.
Tassotti has been at Milan since 1980 when he moved from Lazio and since 2001 he has been working as the assistant coach, sitting on the bench alongside Carlo Ancelotti, Leonardo, Max Allegri and of course in the past few months, Seedorf.
“It could be my last game at San Siro. We’ll See what happens, it is clear that it would be emotional to leave a place when I’ve spent 34 years,” Tassotti told the press before the game with Sassuolo which Milan won 2-1. Seedorf was asked about it after the game: “Tassotti was my coach for 10 years with Carlo Ancelotti and we’ve been through a lot together.
“I don’t know that the future holds for him but he deserves the thanks of the entire club for everything he has done as a player and as a coach.” Today’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Tassotti will go and join Massimiliano Allegri’s coaching staff. It’s still unknown where Allegri will be working next season. “Assistant managers form pairs with Coaches and he could form a pair with another Coach who has passed through Milan,” Adriano Galliani said before the game.
Tassotti said yesterday that “there are many reasons to leave. Stories begin and at times they don’t end. Let’s wait and see what happens.” Some websites have also brought up the possibility that Tassotti will replace Zidane at Ancelotti’s Real.
