Official: AC Milan announce Paulo Fonseca as new head coach

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have officially announced Paulo Fonseca as their new head coach, putting the speculation to an end. The appointment was confirmed in conjunction with today’s big press conference ahead of the 2024-25 season. 

Fonseca’s arrival had been more or less certain for a few weeks now, but fans had to wait until today for the official announcement. The Portuguese manager has signed a contract with the club and after Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirmed it during the press conference, Milan also published a statement.

“AC Milan can confirm that Paulo Fonseca has been appointed as the Head Coach of the Men’s First Team. The Portuguese coach joins the Club on a three-year contract,” the statement read.

The fans can finally start focusing on the upcoming season, following intense weeks of speculation, and it will be very interesting to see what the management has in store. Fonscea might not have been the most exciting manager available, but he fits the bill for Milan’s overall strategy.

Milan will start the pre-season in early July and Fonseca will have a tour in the United States to get to know most of his players. In other words, there should be enough time to have a solid foundation for the start of the season.

  1. He is a low profile, low cost option, who won’t rock the boat.
    Out of all the available managers it’s not overly inspiring.
    However he starts with a clean slate and we should all give him our full support.

  2. Not really the choice many of us would have made but now he is here so lets support him and hope for a great start and that we will fight for the scudetto to the end.
    Best of wishes.

  3. terrible coach. redbird yes man stooge. poor mans pioli. not my coach this is redbirds coach. me and i would say majority of Milan fans are completely against this move and wont support it. he will get the sharp end of it the moment he messes up. the fans will be all over him .

    if the fans were harsh on a title winning pioli,then this guy is going to get absolutely destroyed when the time comes.

  4. Like I said in an another article. We can do nothing but support him and hope he does well. He may not be our ideal candidate but looking from the outside many people have praised his work at lille and have said he’s going to be great at milan so we can only hope and time will tell. Good luck!

  5. Welcome and all the best to Fonseca and the club.

    Although not super enthusiastic, I/we will of course support you and the club.

  6. Ah,,, here it is. Was looking for the official article. I’m going to miss people losing their collective sh!ts over something they have absolutely zero control of. The entertainment value of that was absolutely superb * chefs kiss* 😂😂😂. This could work spectacularly well or spectacularly badly or somewhere in-between. As I’ve said before let’s remember what exactly we’re losing and be comfortable with it. Be comfortable with 5th next year or even 6th (or still second) because this is what we’ve asked for.
    Anyways, best of luck to the new coach! You’ll need it! Let’s hope we win something this year

  7. Here We Go, the next chapter!

    Good Luck to Fonseca. Hope he balances this team and involves the youth. my guess is that’s why he was chosen. He will need to bridge and integrate the U23’s to the first team.
