A new name has emerged to potentially take over as the head coach of Milan’s Primavera side in former Rossoneri midfielder Alberto Aquilani.
Calciomercato.com report how the Milan leadership are looking for the right coach to entrust a talented group of players with after the sacking of Giunti and after a difficult season where the relegation play-offs were only avoided thanks to a win against Genoa in the final round.
With 3 consecutive Coppa Italia Primavera titles and an Primavera Super Cup to his name with Fiorentina, Aquilani is building a reputation as a bright young coach. For the moment it is only an idea, but the former Roma and Liverpool midfielder is admired because of the way the young Viola players are expressing themselves.
It was back on 11 July 2019 that Aquilani was announced as the head coach of Fiorentina’s U18 team but he joined the first team staff as an assistant to Giuseppe Iachini in December of that year, and then in July 2020 he was appointed as head coach of the Primavera squad.
