Silvio Berlusconi has reportedly turned down Unai Emery, Maurizio Sarri and Sinisa Mihajlovic and it looks like Antonio Conte and Vincenzo Montella are the only candidates left.

The search for the next coach continues as it’s clear that Filippo Inzaghi, despite publicly asking for more chances, won’t have confidence in him renewed and will look to continue his career elsewhere.

Mediaset pundit Maurizio Pistocchi revealed yesterday that Milan have an agreement in place with Sevilla boss Unai Emery but according to a Sky Italia report from Monday evening, Emery is not the one club President Berlusconi wants.

Sky claims that Berlusconi has decided to reject the prospects of hiring Sevilla’s Emery, Empoli’s Maurizio Sarri and Sampdoria’s Sinisia Mihajlovic. The Italian TV station believes that unless Carlo Ancelotti makes an unexpected decision and accepts Milan’s offer to return then the top candidates to replace Inzaghi are Italy boss Antonio Conte and Fiorentina’s Vincenzo Montella.

Ancelotti meanwhile has confirmed his desire to take a year off as his Real Madrid contract will soon be terminated. “I said it at the Press conference, and I can only repeat it – I’ll stop for a year,” Ancelotti said. I also have a very serious reason to stop, I need to have an operation for cervical stenosis.

“For some time I’ve been having tingling in my hands, if I wait any longer it may spread to my legs, so I’ve made an appointment for surgery. Frankly I don’t know how long I’ll have to physically stop, for the postoperative phase and subsequent rehabilitation.

“Galliani is in Madrid? It’ll be a pleasure to have guests for dinner, but I can’t change the schedule. The die is cast. Milan? I’ve always said and thought that if one day I return to coach a club in Italy, I could only do it with Milan. Their future? I know they have big plans, and they want to invest and revive the team. It won’t be easy though, as the clubs who have big players will want to keep them.”

Everything is still a rumour of course and the only certainly is that Inzaghi will leave Milan.

Great… the only manager I was hoping for was Emery but I guess Conte is another hopeful one who also trusts youth. I just hope its not Montella cause that will probably be another disaster season…

Pinocchi

Me too, and I still hope that he will be our coach for the next season!

Papito

Oh no. I prefer Emery over Conte and Montella. Conte is good he wasnt that good in Europe.

Ricardo

How about allegri and matri in champion keague final?

Azad

No to 3-5-2!!!!!!!!!

rosso138

Why not? It sure is better than 4-3-3, we have players to play that formation (only 3 cbs are weak point)

—————- Lopez
—– Alex — Paletta — Antonelli
Abate/DeSc Suso VanGinkel Jack SES
————– Honda
————– Striker

Antonelli is more LM but SES is great in defensive jobs and attacking… Abate would have more freedom in attack..
When defending, switching to 5-3-2 we would have 5 man back, which is very good…

Only thing I dont know is who to put as striker (destro, menez and pazzo will probably leave)

cloud

Worst than inzaghi

Ephraim

Lol this is not Fifa

cocor

You’re need to stop believe in what media said for now ,wait till it official

dejan10

Any logical explanation as to why he’s disregarded Emery? I suppose Conte would be okay but nothing to get too excited about because of his terrible record in Europe. And Montella is just a big fat no-go.

Some Guy

I’m assuming it has some correlation with his excessive obsession with Italians.

Mr.G

I’m dissapointed. Really gutterd if this is true as emery has learnt with sevilla youth & low budget. I do like the all Italian. I don’t care about winning but about the shirt

pippo

I really hoped we will hire Emery. A proven coach, capable of bringing us on the path of sucess. He showed he can achieve results with more or less limited team, and to be honest, our team is really limited for the time being. Unlike Conte, who did have great results with Juve, but to be realistic, it was more or less straightforward job. I’m from Croatia, and seeing him now and his Italy team playing against us, i realize he maybe isnt so capable of making not so great team better…

rosso138

Agree 100%, Emery would be more capable for the job… And how it seems for now Angelloti is taking year off, klopp (maybe to madrid), emery rejected, conte (probably that will fail too), and we will get montella…
Same as every fckn market, we “aim for messi” and than bring zaccardo…

Btw im also from croatia and I cant wait to see Conte, and how he will put team against Croatia..

Paul

Milan current squad is not too bad but it is coach fault.
I so much trust unia emery with prove,e.g look at valancia and now sevila bot in spain and europe i will welcome him if he come,as he has alreedy sign pre-contrack,i hope he will com.in other way i prefer conte but in europe is way i worry but i hope for a change since it is milan if conte.

falsephrophet

We need to get to Europe fast, Conte is our man, i don’t know how it will happen though. the figc won’t let him go easily. Unless galliani works his magic, i think Ancelotti will stick to his word and take a year off. Montella is most likely to happen because of his tiff with the fiorentina fans..why no Klopp though?

Vaidinho

Actually I though that’s why Real cut off Ancelotti – to get Klopp.

Milan4ever

Really? I prefer Unai Emery. Montella is no different than Inzaghi. For time to time our dream crush one by one. After the talk about selling the club and now this Manager issue. Im tired of Berlusconi.

greg

Berlusconi is just being xenophobic now, I like Montella but I can’t stand Conte’s style, it’s the worst I’ve seen Italy play apart from Lippi’s second reign

Tkonami

Official: Real Madrid sack Ancelotti,

Galliani !!! where are you ?

welly

Comment: Madrid!

Jibola

Milan is a drama club these day, let’s see how this movie ends.

pelle80

Yes bro. Like i always say “fingers crossed”**coughs***MR X.****COUGHS…

olamyd

Comment:2ruout allegri’s stay in milan he never succeed in europe bt jst look at what he his doin with juve nw, so dnt judge conte with his juventus european record…

Ricardo

If u want europe, allegri is the best

rosso138

What is wrong with Mandzo?? He is great and underrated player, he scores 20+ goals per season, hard worker..

Would you rather want gilardino? Or matri?

Hasowayne

”Mr. Berlusconi’s got me as confused as a chameleon in a skittles bag” Not even sure what to expect anymore. From selling part of the club to either Mr Lee Or Mr Bee, to ”I’m just looking for someone to help me financially”. From having a pre-agreement with Emery in case Ancelotti doesn’t come to either Montella or Conte. So this goes to say, instead of expecting the best and ending up with worse, I’ll rather expect the worse and hope to end up with the best. In any case, I’m starting to think Milan don’t actually have a plan,… Read more »

Octavius

Hahah, prolly end up with Inzaghi and a couple token players from Japan’s J league a la Mr. X. Lot of talk, little action. But seriously, it looks like the Chinese are gonna invest if reputable sources are to be believed. And Carlo might jump in which in my view is the best candidate. I know lot of peeps are hoping for Emery and Klopp but those guys are unproven. Spanish managers have always had a hard time in Seria A. Klopp is also an enigma, might work out might not. Both these guys have not coached outside their countries.… Read more »

khedira is going to sign with juventus…

Pa ibra

I like montella & his tactics but his inconsistency Is a concern. he could defeat roma 4-1..and lose to verona 2-0 in the following game.

conte on the other hand, aside from his hardworking and winning mentality which is not everthing for me, his arrogance & attitude towards critics sucks! and I dont like the way his teams play.

I’d be fine with any of klopp, sarri, emery.

Octavius

He’s always struck me as half crazed kind of a dude. Ready to explode. Nervous energy.

Misund

Lol Mandzukic is awesome! He is a complete striker a true number 9.

nick

Emry is the right man for the job. I am concerned that Conte will arrive. In my opinion he is way overrated and his football is boring.

Montella is also overrated and inconsistent.

cloud

My vote to emery, but he is not italian, so he has small oppurtunity

I-Milan
Phildadon1899

Oh look, you being negative. Who would have guessed? Mandzukic is amazing, i dont see why you are upset. Oh wait, nevermind, you are just here to bother real Milan fans.

Phildadon1899

I am starting to think that Berlusconi doesnt want a “small team” coach in Milan again. We went from an inexperienced albeit servicebale coach in Seedorf, to Inzaghi another inexperience coach, and that was after Leonardo, and Allegri. We havent really had a manager here since Ancelotti. Maybe that is his line of thinking? , what do you think? id love your input as well

Hasowayne

What I think? Well what I see is ”Berlusconi looking for an Italian coach to enforce his all Italian dream team”.

Berlusconi: “We’re optimistic about Ancelotti returning, but we have four alternatives ready: three in Italy and one abroad.”

Milanista121

I completely agree, I think he wants a coach who can bring us instant success, and is done experimenting. With the exception for Ancelotti, there arent too many class coaches out there. I mean, even Emery would be a gamble in my opinion, even if he has done well with Sevilla, for me, he seems like a coach at that very calibre – Sevilla, EL etc, not a coach who can bring us back to the top, competing for Serie A and UCL, but who knows. My hopes are on Ancelotti, but only if he seems fit to do so,… Read more »

Fatih

Why thinking bad about conte

He made juve a machine
Allegri only oiled it

Conte is a must for milan a italian with experience at top level

Poeple say he had a bad record at cl

Milan doesnt even play in europe

So conte is the perfect manager that will do absolutely good with a budget above 100 mil

levilli

what about di matteo or either donadoni?

MONTANA

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE CONTE FOR MILAN BUT AM SURE GALLIANI WILL CONVINCE ANCELLOTI EVEN FOR A SEASON SO HE CAN BUILD THE TEAM UP …AND I DON’T LIKE MANDZUKIC I WOULD RADER GO FOR IBRAHIMOVIC

levilli

what about di matteo or donadoni?

JaRossoneri

I dont mean to be so negative, I would welcome either, but neither Ibra or Madzukic is likely to come to Milan at this point… I’d like to see us let go of this “all Italian” fantasy and look to Brazil for reinforcements… Gabigol should be taken seriously. Doria may reconsider joining us after his experience in france. And as a package deal with Doria I’d love to see Pato return. Alexandre is currently in superb form, we will regret it if hes allowed to join Inter or Samp… Im not sure of our non EU situation, but we could… Read more »

elizabeth

between all of them related to milan hot seat, i thought emery is the right person. but then berlusconi denied him and wanted italian only candidate? his love for his country is truly wonderful. ha ha.
i’ll just wait untill it official. hope for the best. forza milan!

ACMilanSince 69

Why isn’t Donadoni in contention?

dante

why would he be? Is donadoni the right coach to lead milan back to UCL? If you look at his wikipedia page he was sacked in most places he coached.

MONTANA

GUYZ WHAT DO U THINK OF KEVIN BOATENG TO RETURN TO OUR BELOVED MILAN ..ROMA ARE PREPARING A 4 YEARS IDEAL FOR HIM..

MONTANA

GUYZ EMERY HAS DONE IT AGAIN THIS COACH IS SUPERB I REALLY WISH WE CAN GET HIM

elizabeth

guys, galliani still pressing don carlo to accept the position. although don carlo said he needs a rest for his operation. fyi, there is a list of milan head coach who reclaim the post and failed on their second tenure as head coach.
while we should hurry to decide who is our next head coach, it looks like berlusconi is enjoying his popularity with the media. berlusconi told mediaset he may take the coaching himself. lol. looks like it’s going to be a another saga. #patience

Sid

Absolute Stupidity – Emery is best option. Conte can only do good in Serie A which is not what we want. Very Inflexible with his 3-5-2 . Montella is fine but Emery would have been amazing. Would have taken us far in Europe.

Pa Ibra

you guys should know that witsels value has dropped and thats weird at 26 when a player should be at around his best. also not many clubs following him with zenith being calm in losing him is not a great sign. I am surprised people are not noticing!!

Pa Ibra

letme make a list for galliani because he cant see: dzeko, thiago Silva, kovacic, van ginkel, quintero, lacazette, hummels, illaramendi, huguain, verratti. ok some might be difficult but most are possible. now sign!. dont know how kojak is given money and still cant sign!!!, what else does he need to make players accept us?!? he cant convince them! only witsel & ely…and thats because inter they’re real b*tch and other clubs are not contesting. 150m given to kojak and we are still looking weak in the market omg.
