Stefano Pioli has done a tremendous job since he took over AC Milan in 2019 and with two games left of this season, the Scudetto is in their hands. An amazing turnaround that few expected when he was brought in.
The Rossoneri are currently two points ahead of their city rivals Inter and could get their revenge from last season, when they finished in 2nd place. They need four points from the remaining two games, provided that the Nerazzurri win their games.
In any case, Pioli’s amazing work with this squad is there for everyone to see and even if Milan were to fail in their Scudetto pursuit, he deserves praise. Very few, as said, could have imagined this less than three years ago and that says a lot.
What also says a lot is the numbers. As pointed out by Corriere Dello Sport (see photo below), only Fabio Capello has done better than Pioli in terms of average points per game. Pioli is currently a 1.96 and Capello was at 2.2 between 1991 and 1996.
