One of Stefano Pioli’s first acts as the new head coach of AC Milan has been to change the way the team eats, a report claims.
The Rossoneri earlier in the week that Marco Giampaolo had been sacked as head coach after just 111 days in charge – the shortest reign of any manager in the club’s history.
During his official presentation on Wednesday, the 53-year-old stated that there are three key principles which he wishes to instil into the current squad of players.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport though – as cited by MilanNews.it – not all that Pioli wants to change is on the training pitch.
The new coach has also prioritised the dietary aspect of his methodology, the paper writes.
The goal is to group together and take care of the diet, something which is viewed as important both for personal relationships within the squad and also allows the club to have greater control over what the players eat
The players will have both breakfast and lunch together at one big table rather than lots of small ones, before and after training respectively.
In summary: alarm clock, breakfast at Milanello, team training and lunch. In this way two meals will be organised and supervised.
