Stefano Pioli could save his job at AC Milan by achieving one of two objectives between now and the end of the season, according to a report.
The general consensus is that the level of performances have improved drastically since Pioli took over in October following Marco Giampaolo’s disastrous 111 day spell in charge.
However, the truth is that Milan are still 10 points off the Champions League places, and speculation has been rife in the media that Elliott Management – along with directors Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban – are looking at potential replacements.
According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by Calciomercato.com – Pioli will only continue as manager next season if he meets one of two criteria: a top four finish or victory in the Coppa Italia, and it would be fair to say both are unlikely at present.
At the moment, the two names most strongly linked with the Rossoneri bench are Ralf Rangnick and Max Allegri.
