Despite the improvements since the start of the year, Stefano Pioli’s future with the club has practically been decided already. In today’s edition of Corriere Dello Sport (via Milanlive.it), we read all about it.
The chances of seeing the manager at Milan’s bench next season are minimal. In particular, as the report continues, the Rossoneri had set up two goals: victory of the Coppa Italia and the nearly impossible Champions League qualification.
Pioli has done his best so far, though. He brought back trust and results, he found an identity and he valued the staff. This certainly enhanced the new signings like Theo Hernandez, Ante Rebic and Ismael Bennacer.
Furthermore, he also managed to recover old players such as Samu Castillejo and Hakan Calhanoglu. According to the report, though, this isn’t enough and Milan already have a new manager in pole position for the job.
Should Pioli leave, the Ivan Gazidis is keen on bringing in Ralf Rangnick in a revolutionary role. However, his idea clashes with Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban. Therefore, it remains to be seen who the manager will be next season.
