The chances of Stefano Pioli staying on as head coach of AC Milan have increased, a report claims, amid doubts over Ralf Rangnick’s arrival.
According to Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), there is a stand-by in the negotiations with Rangnick given all the uncertainties going on at the moment due to the COVID-19 emergency and its effect on football.
As a result, Pioli’s candidacy is rising because in a delicate moment like the one that world football is going through, Milan could decide to focus on what it has and opt for continuity.
That also includes technical staff too, so the Rossoneri could wait for clearer days and then laying the foundations for a new revolution.
Many factors favour Pioli such as the fact he has given the team a clear identity and he has the backing of the squad, whom he has improved every member of despite perhaps Lucas Paquetá and Rafael Leão.
The average points per game went from 1.2 to 1.7. The percentage of wins also improved, from 35% in the first part to 50% in the second, and the goals scored went from 0.9 per game to 1.7.
