Moretto addresses the ‘open secret’ regarding Pioli’s fate at Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Stefano Pioli’s future is something that continues to dominate debates between fans and in the columns of newspapers, with Matteo Moretto giving his take on things.

The general consensus is that Pioli is entering the final few months of his tenure as Milan’s head coach. While the parting can and should still be amicable, we recently wrote about why his nearly five-year tutelage could fade out in a sad way.

There are only three coaches who have managed more games than Pioli in Milan’s entire 124-year history, which shows just how well he has done after initially being an interim solution.

He stands at 1.89 points per game which is far from a bad return, given that it is higher than Max Allegri and Alberto Zaccheroni, for example, who won multiple trophies.

Moretto of Relevo spoke on the YouTube show ‘La Fiera del Calcio’ and he was asked about what the future holds for Milan – including the defensive department – and in particular for Pioli.

“As far as the coach is concerned, I certainly believe that we need to navigate this situation here by sight. It’s very delicate as a thing,” he began (via Radio Rossonera).

“As I have written many times, I believe that at the end of the season, even towards May, Milan will make a decision in agreement with Pioli. But today an imminent change, also given Sunday’s victory against Roma, is difficult.

“Then, I repeat, at the end of the year the necessary assessments will be made and the paths will most likely part ways, but this is a bit of an open secret.”
