Former AC Milan star Ricardo Kaka has wished Stefano Pioli the best of luck after being named as the club’s new head coach.
Marco Giampaolo’s sacking was confirmed last Tuesday, with the 50-year-old having lasted just 111 days in charge of the Rossoneri, the shortest reign in the club’s history in calendar terms.
Pioli – previously of Lazio, Inter and Fiorentina – now faces the task of transforming a team that has lost four of its opening seven games to start the season.
Kaka last spoke about Milan before the derby against Inter, a 2-0 defeat for the Diavolo, and revealed his belief that signs were positive under Giampaolo.
Now, the former Brazil international spoke to the microphones of Sky Italia about the change in managers.
“Let’s see how it goes, Pioli has just arrived,” he said (via Calciomercato.com).
“Let’s hope that Milan can recover quickly. I wish the coach a good luck and I hope he can deliver good work.
“It’s difficult to understand what’s happening when you are not on the inside.
“According to the management, the manager was one of the problems and with the change it was solved, but it’s not easy to judge from outside. As a Milanista I wish that things go well.”
