Pellegatti sheds lights on rumours of Spalletti replacing Giampaolo at Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Luciano Spalletti would not be interested in taking the Milan job at present should Marco Giampaolo be sacked, a journalist has claimed.

There are growing concerns regarding Giampaolo’s reign as Rossoneri head coach so far, with two defeats in the opening four games and just two goals scored (one from open play).

On Monday, we revealed via our correspondent Vito Angele that while the former Sampdoria boss has the full backing of Maldini and Boban, Elliott Management want to see an improvement in results quickly.

The upcoming two games against Torino (away) and Fiorentina (home) risk being fundamental for his future at the club, and rumours have already began circulating about a potential replacement.

One of the names that is being reported in the media is that of Spalletti, who is currently still unemployed after leaving rivals Inter at the end of last season.

Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.it) named him as a potential candidate, with the 60-year-old having finished third, second, fourth and fourth over his last four seasons as Inter and Roma boss.

Journalist Carlo Pellegatti though has poured cold water on any chance of him taking over at Milan.

“From what I understand, Spalletti would not want to coach until the end of the season,” he told Telelombardia (via CM.it).

“If Milan called on the phone, maybe he could have a change of heart, however from what they tell me his idea now is to stay still.”
