Pioli implies silverware is a must to keep his job at Milan for next season

By Isak Möller -

Stefano Pioli provided an interesting answer to the very last question of today’s press conference, which took place at Milanello. When asked if he could get another 200 games in charge of AC Milan, he implied that silverware is a must. 

The manager reached 200 appearances as the head coach of the Rossoneri earlier this week. He didn’t get to enjoy it properly as Paris Saint-Germain prevailed 3-0 on the night, but he was celebrated by the team at Milanello yesterday.

At the end of today’s press conference (see video below) ahead of the Napoli clash, Pioli was asked about adding another 200 games to his name as the head coach of Milan. In his response, however, he implied that this season is make or break for him: “It would mean that we will celebrate in May.”

In other words, without the Scudetto or a very good season, Pioli’s position would come under scrutiny. Tomorrow’s clash against Napoli is almost a must-win for the Rossoneri after two tough defeats and it remains to be seen how they will respond.

  1. We are in a weird position were a good season is difficult to define. From economic and fundamental circumstances top 3 in the league and 3-4. place in the CL would be fine, from fan‘s wishes it is more scudetto and 2nd in CL.

  2. Think if we win some and play like cr@p he gotta go. If we dont win some and play great he gotta go.
    Only a miracle could keep his job after this season. And one miracle happened 2 seasons ago, doubt another will happen for him

  3. Be realistic you fans …..the scuddeto would be a huge success….This is now a realistic target …
    Forget the champions league…
    We are a good team ,,,but things have not gone down well as again we have so many injuries..Loftus cheek again ….I think Loftus is a great player when fit ?
    I think we will win tomorrow against Napoli .
    Giroud is going to score …You will all then be rating him ….pioli is a very good manger ..
    So we can have a successful season ..pioli will keep his job …
