AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli wants to achieve one key objective before he leaves the club at the end of the season.
According to Tuesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), Pioli will depart at the conclusion of the current campaign if he is forced to do so, but he wants to do it with his head held high.
He also wants to make the decision as difficult as possible for the club’s management, and has two methods in mind: the first is to achieve Europa League qualification, while the second is to somehow win the Coppa Italia.
Despite the persistent speculation, Pioli is a symbol of imperturbability and professionalism. The paper notes how a hundred more names could come up from here to the end, but the ex-Lazio boss would continue to work with his head down as he has always done since his arrival.
In spite of everything, his fate is in fact sealed and even winning the cup would not save him, but Pioli has a mission for this final rush: to close these final 12 matchdays with dignity.
