CorSera: Milan hierarchy already unsure about Giampaolo

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan leadership are already doubtful whether Marco Giampaolo can be a success at the club, a report claims.

Giampaolo was named as the new head coach over the summer, leaving Sampdoria to join the Rossoneri after Gennaro Gattuso left his role as boss.

He has had a mixed start to life as Milan manager, having lost the opening game of the season against Udinese without even registering a shot on target.

However, the team did bounce back at San Siro in round two, beating Brescia 1-0 in a game where they could have scored more.

The club have fully invested in the vision of buying young players with big potential to help Giampaolo implement his 4-3-1-2 system.

Despite this, a report from il Corriere della Sera – as cited by Calciomercato.com – claims that the Milan hierarchy are not sure whether the 52-year-old will be able to deliver.

Although he is a manager with great respect in Italy, this is Giampaolo’s first time in charge of a truly big club, and the report adds that there are doubts over whether he will be able to handle the pressure.

The objective for this season is a top four finish and a return to the Champions League, something which means patience is at a premium.
