Atletico Madrid’s sporting director Andrea Berta has spoken with the entourage of AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli, according to a report.
Pioli arrived at Milan back in 2019 to take over from Marco Giampaolo and he inherited a squad that needed a lot of work technically and psychologically, and the journey under his tenure so far has been nothing short of positive.
He has transformed the club from a rudderless ship into being a team with a clear playing style that is competing for the title again and returned to the Champions League, with the help of figures like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Simon Kjaer among others.
According to what is being reported by Twitter account AtletiFrancia, Andrea Berta – who is the sporting director of the LaLiga champions – spoke last night via phone with the agents of Pioli.
More information on the conversation is set to follow, but there is growing uncertainty surrounding Diego Simeone’s position as their head coach given that they are currently outside the top four spots in the league.
