AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli will not resign from his position after Wednesday’s game against Juventus despite speculation suggesting otherwise.
The Rossoneri are, quite frankly, in utter turmoil at the moment. Director Zvonomir Boban is set to be sacked after he spoke out regarding CEO Ivan Gazidis’ decision to go behind the backs of the management and agree a deal with Ralf Rangnick for next season.
Tuttosport then reported that the possibility of Pioli resigning following the Coppa Italia semi-final second leg on Wednesday night cannot be excluded, due to the negative environment surrounding the club at present.
However, SportMediaset have provided an update by claiming that Pioli will not leave the club after the game in midweek regardless.
The reason for this is simple: despite the current situation at the club, the coach has established in recent months a strong and close relationship with the team, which follows and supports him.
In addition, the fruits of his work are beginning to show. It does not matter if the results remain mixed: if there was a way to build something with this squad, the road followed by Pioli was the only one possible.
The report adds that tomorrow evening or on Thursday at the latest the next day, Zvone Boban’s adventure at Milan will come to an end, while Maldini could follow him out of the exit door too.
This would obviously have an effect on Pioli as Maldini was the one who chose and defended him despite the virtual certainty of the former Lazio boss being replaced.
