CM: Milan leaders ‘dreaming of Allegri’ to take over from Giampaolo

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ‘dreaming’ of bringing back Max Allegri to replace the struggling Marco Giampaolo as head coach, a report claims.

It was another nightmare for the Rossoneri on Sunday as they were defeated yet again at San Siro, losing 3-1 to Fiorentina.

Erick Pulgar’s penalty opened the scoring for La Viola, who won their first Serie A game since February in the last round against Sampdoria.

Gaetano Castrovilli and Franck Ribery scored in the second half as the Curva Sud virtually emptied, with audible chants protesting at the current state of the club.

Rumours surrounding Giampaolo’s future at the club were rife after the game, with reports from TMW that Andriy Shevchenko ‘could become more of an idea’ for the bench.

Then, our correspondent Vito Angele confirmed to us that Giampaolo’s position is under threat, with three possible temporary solutions being considered.

According to Calciomercato.com though, the ‘choice of many of the Rossoneri leaders’ would in fact be the return of Allegri.

The former Juventus boss has been out of work since leaving the Bianconeri at the end of last season, and is of course the last manager to win a Scudetto at Milan.

A recent report from SportMediaset though did claim that Allegri’s €10m-a-year salary is considered too high by the club.
