‘Deeply thankful’ – Pioli sends message after AC Milan exit is made official

By Oliver Fisher -

Stefano Pioli has expressed his gratitude to everyone connected with AC Milan after it was announced that he will be leaving the club after Saturday’s game.

Milan announced this morning that Stefano Pioli will leave the club at the end of the current season, following a tenure of nearly five years at the club. Tomorrow’s game against Salernitana, therefore, will be his last with the club.

According to what was reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan wants Pioli’s farewell to be a celebration and the club are preparing a surprise. No details on what that actually means have revealed, but they are determined to give him some recognition.

As part of the statement, the club passed on some words from Pioli who was full of thanks for the journey that has taken place over the past five seasons.

“Stefano Pioli expresses his gratitude to AC Milan for the opportunity to be part of the history of this glorious Club. He is deeply thankful to the ownership, management, team, staff, and everyone at Milanello and Casa Milan for their support and outstanding commitment.

“He also extends a special thanks to the many fans who have passionately supported AC Milan over the years, demonstrating unwavering dedication.”

  1. Grazie Stefano, hopefully the stadium will sing Pioli’s on Fire on full blast one last time. I know I will, my neighbour would confirm later.

  2. Milan will always remain thankful for what Pioli has done…probably it is for the good of both the club and him. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors!

  3. He always behaved in a dignified and professional manner, always honoring Milan’s colors. He certainly made mistakes, something that is naturally human, of course, and would happen with any manager, but truly deserves from the fans all the affection and respect he can get

    Forza, Piola, auguri!

  4. I wrote on this platform after Maldini and cohort were sacked and Pioli was given more power that Pioli would be the next scapegoat.

    Apart from in-game management deficiencies, Pioli was overall a good coach who did the best he could.

    But we need to move on.

    Thanks Pioli.
