  1. Out of all the coaches in that picture, I’d only want Pioli. Okay, there’s not much competition when you’re up against Anti-football Mourinho and Allegri but still. And the biggest tools are the highest earners…wow.

    1. As much as I don’t like him I’d probably also take inzaghi purely for his style of play. Pioli and inzaghi only ones worth it imo

    2. I never liked mourinho but ill give him credit for two things, he has been successfull and i can see why lots of his players liked him as he has shown willingness to take some heat for his players but besides of that i wouldnt want him near ac milan.
      In the case we didnt have pioli sarri would be ok with me and from one not mentioned here in the list gasperini could be an intriguing choice, same goes with de zerbi.
