GdS: Giampaolo’s job safe for now but Genoa win ‘did not convince’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Marco Giampaolo has saved his job for the time being but has not convinced the leaders with the win at Genoa, a report claims.

The Rossoneri put a halt to their three-game losing run with a dramatic 2-1 victory on Saturday night at the Marassi.

The goals arrived from Theo Hernandez and a Franck Kessie penalty after Pepe Reina had gifted the Grifone an opening goal, but he redeemed himself with a 93rd minute penalty save to preserve the three points.

According to Sunday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport though – as cited by MilanNews – it was a victory that did not convince. 

The longed-for three points arrived only thanks to the save from Reina and the half-time substitutions that saw Lucas Paquetà and Rafael Leao come on, after they had initially been left on the bench. 

Giampaolo remains the Milan coach, but everyone is in agreement that there is a lot to do and not just in the last twenty metres as he said in his press conference on Friday.
