Il Mattino: Pioli in pole position to take over at one of Milan’s Serie A rivals

By Oliver Fisher -

Despite the fact that there are still many games to go this season and a couple of objectives to fight for, Stefano Pioli’s name has ended up as the most likely to take another Serie A job.

According to what is being reported by Il Mattino (via PianetaMilan), Pioli has jumped into pole position to take over as the Napoli head coach in view of the 2024-25 campaign.

The Naples-based paper thus predicts that he will leave Milan once the season is done, and claim he has overtaken Vincenzo Italiano of Fiorentina to replace the interim head coach Francesco Calzona.

If this happens, the Rossoneri will of course have to replace Pioli and the management certainly have no shortage of ideas. The most viable path leads to Thiago Motta, whose contract with Bologna is expiring.

However, there is also the track leading to Antonio Conte who is actually Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis’ ‘secret dream’ to take over there, but ‘seems destined to remain so’ because he is not attracted to the project.

While all of the reliable sources are suggesting that Milan have not made a firm decision on Pioli’s future just yet, there is growing noise suggesting that a parting of the ways is not only an idea but actually quite likely.

  1. It would be great for Milan too if Pioli gets a job right away so they won’t have to pay him the salary for the last year of his contract.

  2. Already said this. He’d do well there. Tho adl is whimsical af. He brought napoli a long way but now idk. This season he got it all wrong

  3. Pioli might have got things wrong this season but i bet you all that he’s still the best to continue with this team.

    So i feel we should keep him to continue next season and see how things turns out.

    1. Don’t think you are thinking straight mate he is the worst
      Manager in the clubs history. We draw with Atalanta inter thrash them to nite four nil. He should not be there let him go now.

  4. You’re probably safer at a club (any club) where you’re underachieving a bit and the press are all over you, than you are at Napoli where you’re top of the league, in the final of the UCL, have single handedly gold-plated the San Paolo on your own time and dime, but lost your last two games.
