The chances of Ralf Rangnick taking up a role at AC Milan this summer have decreased given the current climate of uncertainty, a report claims.
There is still various speculation in the media at present regarding Rangnick and whether or not he will start a new adventure in Italy this summer as the Rossoneri’s new head coach and sporting director.
La Gazzetta dello Sport writes today (via MilanLive) that any serious chance of the German arriving at San Siro once the season is over is decreasing.
For weeks there has been talk of contacts with Rangnick, even of a pre-agreement between he and CEO Ivan Gazidis himself, but the Coronavirus emergency seems to have slowed everything down.
Without certainties about the future – including even the resumption of the season – Milan will not be able to make long-term plans, which increases the likelihood of Stefano Pioli staying on.
Rangnick remains in the background as a name very much appreciated by Gazidis, but that for the moment appears difficult to convince. A leap in the dark that Milan, in this delicate moment, does not seem able to afford.
It is not excluded that things change when football starts again and the season is completed. At that point, it will be based on results that Milan make their call.
