AC Milan could reportedly turn to one of five names as Marco Giampaolo’s future as head coach grows more and more uncertain.
Another defeat at San Siro on Sunday night against Fiorentina has sent speculation into overdrive that Giampaolo could be sacked by the club.
Erick Pulgar’s penalty opened the scoring for La Viola, while Gaetano Castrovilli and Franck Ribery scored in the second half as the Curva Sud virtually emptied, with audible chants protesting at the current state of the club.
The result means Milan have lost four out of their first six league games to start a season for the first time since 1938.
TMW claimed after the game that Andriy Shevchenko ‘could become more of an idea’ to take over, while Vito Angele confirmed to us that Giampaolo’s position is under threat, with three possible temporary solutions being considered.
According to Calciomercato.com – who cite La Gazzetta dello Sport – there are as many as five names who could end up taking the job.
Some are described as unlikely, such as Max Allegri and Luciano Spalletti, while Claudio Ranieri and Rudi Garcia are ‘affordable options’.
In addition there is also the name of Arsene Wenger, but for now Giampaolo remains and his sacking is not imminent, the report adds.
