Mediaset: Milan identify club legend Shevchenko as possible alternative to Rangnick

By Oliver Fisher -

Ralf Rangnick is not the only name that AC Milan have in mind in terms of becoming the club’s next head coach, according to a report.

Speculation is rife that the German will complete a move to Milan once the current season is over taking a role as ‘manager’ – a position which involves being in control of both tactics and recruitment.

According to the latest from SportMediaset (via MilanLive), the possibility of Andriy Shevchenko returning home and becoming the new head coach could become a concrete possibility if Rangnick – the first choice – declines the project.

Shevchenko is currently leading the Ukrainian national team with another Rossoneri legend in Mauro Tassotti as his assistant, and the consensus is that so far he has done a good job.

The former striker recently revealed in an interview granted to Carlo Pellegatti that he wants to coach Milan one day, a wish that could come true in a short time.

Milan obviously have a past when it comes to appointing club icons as managers, as seen with the likes of Capello and Ancelotti won everything as players, in addition to Seedorf, Inzaghi and Gattuso.
