The game against Genoa at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Saturday will not be a last chance saloon for Marco Giampaolo, a report claims.
The Rossoneri have lost four of their first six league games this season, their worst start to a season in over 80 years, and as such pressure is piling on Giampaolo.
Reports from il Corriere dello Sport on Monday stated that failure to beat Genoa on Saturday could spell the end for him.
The likes of Rudi Garcia, Andriy Shevchenko, Gennaro Gattuso, Roberto Donadoni and Claudio Ranieri have been linked as replacements, as have Max Allegri and Luciano Spalletti – with contact reportedly made with the former.
However, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews.it – the game against Genoa does not in fact represent a do-or-die game for Giampaolo.
This suggests that the former Sampdoria boss could be given more time even if the result at the Marassi is not a favourable one.
