Stefano Pioli’s candidacy to become the new Milan coach is gaining momentum and he might already sign tomorrow if Spalletti does not sort out his issues.

Marco Giampaolo’s time at Milan is over after seven games and while he’s waiting for the official communication from the Rossoneri that he’s been sacked, the club is working to find his replacement.

Luciano Spalletti is the top choice of the management, but there are big obstacles as he’s still under contract with Inter and he will not sign with Milan until he agrees a severance package with the Nerazzurri.

As a result, the Diavolo are looking around and according to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, the possibilities of seeing Stefano Pioli on the bench of Milan soon are rising. In fact, there will be a meeting in Milano tomorrow between Pioli and the Rossoneri directors to discuss everything.

Di Marzio claims that should Spalletti’s situation still be blocked by tomorrow night, then Pioli could sign a contract with Milan already on Wednesday evening. Former Marseille coach Rudi Garcia and former Valencia coach Marcelino have also been linked with Milan, but an Italian coach could be preferred. Therefore, Pioli, who last coach Fiorentina, is the first candidate, if Spalletti doesn’t come.

In the last decade, Pioli has coached Chievo, Palermo, Bologna, Lazio, Inter and the Viola. With the exception of Chievo, he did not see out his contract with any of those clubs, always getting sacked.

Get a real coach, not mediocre or don’t even bother wasting our time again!

Pioli shouldn’t even be imagined let alone considered for the job. Who the heck is Pioli? Seriously? What the heck are the management thinking, seriously?

Like I said 4 years without CL was the coaches fault, now going a decade without CL has been the managements fault. Milan is a club that can’t seem to make the most decent and common sense decisions. What a pity!

If sacking giampaolo means we instead hire pioli i would deffently give him a few more matches to improve as he atleast has worked with the players for a while and hopefully regardless of how badly we have played up untill now can allways hope for a turning point in that win against genoa whereas brining in a new coach like pioli is just as risky if not more. When that is said maybe we need maldini and Boban to be more clear that they want us to utilize the new players more and bench those WHO hasnt performed yet… Read more »

It is a really complicated situation here. Management wants the new players to be fielded, improved, grown and financially raise thair value. This needs to be done along with a beautiful style of play, and of course with lots of positive results, preferrably qualifying for CL next season. Adding this to the fact that all players are under 25 years old, have under 30mil market value (few exceptions, even though Milan has failed completely the outgoing transfers in the last decade), no CL experience, low salaries, and a low profile coach who has to agree with this terms. Long story… Read more »

Lol, this reminded me of those ridiculous FIFA objectives in manager mode: 1.”Singh 5 players from the youth team in the first team and play them for 10 games”
2.”Win the league”

Hey there Valo12 sorry for first replying now but had a really rough weekend so had to get a good rest of sleep but absolutely agree and in the end its pretty much about prioritization and planning as we cant have it all at the same time unless we actually pays the Cash to get 3-4 marquee signings to take the step up while at the same time adding a coach of some standard which will also cost some cash beyond what we have been willing to recently. “management is looking for a miracle to happen”, spot on and has… Read more »

If we can’t get a top coach it would make more sense to hold out for Spalletti. At least he has qualified for the UCL over the last 4-5 seasons and he has won league titles with Zenith.

I’m not convinced by Pioli and I would rather some like Marcelino Toral or Rudi Garcia over Pioli.

Oh my god this is going from bad to worse really fast. We’re in for one of the worst seasons in last decade

I have my reservations on Giampaolo but replacing him with another mediocre coach won’t help anyone. If anything, get Rino back. At least the team understands his style. And if we want to step up we should step up, properly. Even Wenger would be a good option at this point. My choice would be Donadoni (a true milanisti) with coaching experience. That being said, I had high hopes for Giampaolo, and I wanted to be patient with him, but his selections make no sense, he clings on to players who are not performing (Suso and Hakan have been terrible this… Read more »

If we are hiring Pioli than why fire Giampaolo in the first place, there isn’t much difference in general, other than Pioli preffering 4-3-3. And people asking for Gattusso, did you forget how this team played in the second half last season ? Missing chance after chance to cement 4spot, just running like headless chickens every game, the longer Gattusso was the coach the worse this team was getting, they forgot how to pass, lost every sense for tactical awearnes. Thats what you get after almost 2years of neglecting the technical aspect of the game and only grinta tranning, so… Read more »

Spalleti is definitely an improvement. Pioli on the other hand never showed nothing special in his career. But compare to Giampaolo he is more charismatic and that’s a good thing. In my view until we get a better coach like Carleto (apparently he is leaving Napoli at the end of the season), Wenger, Allegri or even Spalleti, We should stick with Giampaolo. He is slow but he is getting there! Donadoni, Tassoti, Zac &… Are all free and could be considered for short term. They all are power figures. Something that apparently our young squads need and most fan including… Read more »

@Soheil, so you think Ancellotti will come to Milan to coach these kids huh, Carletto Works with experienced players not kids. If at all he will come, he must have a budget to buy his type of players or he won’t bother coming. You all wanted Giampaolo out so enjoy the Pioli ride. Giampaolo was never Milan ‘s problem

@Ted, you still don’t get it? Every player is good and fantastic until they get to Milan. After buying them, we call them washed up and useless, deadwood etc. before we bought Calhanoglu, I know the praises he got on this blog, only ink didn’t see anything special in him and called him free-kick kid from day 1 of his arrival. Honda was marvelous before he came, then we needed to ship out the deadwood called Honda. Montolivo was the new pirlo in the making, he came and became monslowlivo,lol. We appreciate players in other teams and curse our players.… Read more »

Just hope AC milan gets a good coach who can tactically win games for milan. We have some good and average players but no superstars. Only a genius will be able to save milan now. Alteast pay back the years of support and money spent on cheering for this team.

Why is Milan always engaging themselves in average coaches always, I always say the management themselves doesn’t value the team. With the likes of allegri Jose Mourinho and others and you are going for a coach that couldn’t even manage inter Milan , boban, maldini massara and the rest of the management you should no your job well. Probably you want average coaches because you don’t want to spend much.

Our Management is a Joke… We’re going for Pioli, Spalletti, And Gattuso! Like Seriously? When coaches like Marcelino Who took Valencia from scratch to Champions league and even beating Barca in the cup, Wenger is there an already made coach with the biggest mentality U can find who is a specialist in working with young talented lads like leao, Allegri no need to saucy much about him….. Anything Other than these is a complete joke
