GdS: Pioli’s fate is sealed despite excellent run – Elliott will not take any backwards steps

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan owners Elliott Management Corporation are still ready to cut ties with Stefano Pioli despite his remarkable recent run.

Speculation is rife suggesting that Ralf Rangnick will come in and replace Pioli as manager – a dual role as head coach and the technical and/or sporting director in order to control recruitment too.

However, since the resumption of Serie A, Milan have won four games out of five outscoring their opponents 15 to 5 in that spell, which has included victories over Roma (2-0), Lazio away (3-0) and Juventus (4-2).

Nonetheless, Wednesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) insists that Pioli’s fate is written and it is very likely there will be no turnaround.

The excellent run of games will still be useful for him to go away with his head held high and quickly find another team, of course with the merit that he has remained firm at the helm despite the current storm.

Elliott have chosen to focus on an international level coach, on a new cycle, and does not intend to take any steps backward.
