Maurizio Ganz is officially replacing Carolina Morace and he will be leading the Women’s team next season.

Milan Femminile finished the 2018/19 season in 3rd place, four points behind champions Juventus, but coach Carolina Morace terminated her contract with the Rossonere in mid-May.

Today, the club confirmed that the person replacing her will be Maurizio Ganz.

“Milan announces the appointment of Ganz as the new Women’s First Tem coach from July 1, 2019,” a statement on Milan’s site reads.

“Maurizio Ganz, 51 years old, born in Tolmezzo, in Friuli Venezia Giulia played over 600 matches during his career as a footballer and is now returning to Milan, a club with which he played for two seasons, collecting 52 appearances, scoring 11 goals and winning the Scudetto in 1998-99. The club and the coach have signed a two-year contract until June 30, 2021. Ganz joins the team ahead of the summer training camp scheduled for the last week of July and for the following pre-season friendly matches. Davide Cordone has been appointed as assistant coach.

“Paolo Maldini, Strategic Development Director of the Technical Area commented: ‘During his career, Maurizio has always shown strong leadership and significant technical skills. I am sure that, thanks to his guidance, our women will continue to grow, individually & as a group, to the benefit of our club’.”

This will be just the second season in the existence of Milan Femminile, as the Chinese bought Brescia Calcio Femminile last summer and turned it into the team of the Rossonere.

Who cares? We need players and not ladies night bouncers.

Ignorance at its finest. I feel sorry for you.

@Pele80 – is it me or is this site being overrun by emotional snowflakes? No one can take a freaking joke anymore.

@douchebag10, If defending women makes me an “emotional snowflake”, so be it.

I for one, have been impressed with the level of football during the knockout stages of the women’s world cup. And while I’m rooting for France, the few Milanisti on the Italian squad has me quietly rooting for Italy also.

(btw, 6’1″, 238 lb athlete w/4 daughters, two of which play football, doubt you’d say that to my face)

I actually wasn’t talking about specifically seeing as you hardly ever post anything but your reply neatly proves my point. (btw, 6’6″, 248 lb athlete w/6 daughters, three of which play football, doubt you’d say that to my face)
