GdS: Majority of Milan squad would be happy to see Pioli remain as head coach

By Oliver Fisher -

Most of the AC Milan squad would like Stefano Pioli to stay on as head coach, a report claims, amid speculation Ralf Rangnick is set to take his position.

There is still seemingly a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the Rossoneri both on and off the pitch, with some outlets suggesting that the club will undergo yet another revolution in the summer, this time one led by CEO Ivan Gazidis.

Multiple reports have suggested that the former Arsenal chief has set his sights on the appointment of Rangnick as head coach and sporting director, as the German is viewed as the perfect man to lead the youth revolution that Gazidis wants.

However, according to the latest from La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by Calciomercato.com – the chances of Rangnick arriving are decreasing due to the climate of uncertainty created by the COVID-19 emergency.

Nonetheless, the paper claims that most of the team would be fully in support of the potential decision to stick with Pioli for another season, given what he has shown since his arrival at the club last October.
