One of the big pieces of news that might have slipped under the radar yesterday was that Angelo Carbone has left his role as head of the youth sector.
According to Calciomercato.com, Milan are thinking about revolutionising their youth sector after the overhaul at senior management level following the sackings of Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara.
Angelo Carbone was the previous manager of the entire youth sector at Milan and was thus in charge of overseeing the entire operation up to Primavera level, but he was let go after his deal expired on June 30.
So who will replace him? The latest idea is the one that leads to Vincenzo Vergine, the current manager of Roma’s youth sector, but getting him to leave the capital will not be easy.
Lecce sporting director Pantaleo Corvino wants him too after a season in which they actually finished top of the league in the Primavera. Corvino and Vergine are very close, which could help things.
With Roma, Vergine achieved three titles in a single season in 2022 with the Coppa Italia Primavera and in the U17 and U16 titles, a record for the club.
