Stefano Pioli’s adventure at Milan will end this weekend, as he will not remain for next year.

It has been known for a while, but it is now official: Pioli and Milan will part ways at the end of the season.

An official statement on the Diavolo website confirms on Friday:

“Milan and Stefano Pioli announce that the Mister will be departing after the end of the current season, after having been in charge of the First Team since October 2019.

“Milan extends heartfelt thanks to Stefano Pioli and his entire staff for leading the First Team over the past five years, securing an unforgettable League title and re-establishing AC Milan’s consistent presence in the top European competition. Stefano’s professionalism and human touch have significantly contributed to the growth of the squad, embodying the Club’s core values from day one. 

“Stefano Pioli expresses his gratitude to Milan for the opportunity to be part of the history of this glorious Club. He is deeply thankful to the ownership, management, team, staff, and everyone at Milanello and Casa Milan for their support and outstanding commitment. He also extends a special thanks to the many fans who have passionately supported Milan over the years, demonstrating unwavering dedication.”

Pioli’s last game in charge of the Rossoneri will be this Saturday, when the Diavolo take on Salernitana at Stadio San Siro. It will also be the final match, and a final goodbye, for Olivier Giroud and Simon Kjær.
