Pioli reveals he wants long-term Milan stay: “I hope to be the manager then”

By Isak Möller -

Stefano Pioli and his AC Milan side have started the season extremely well, with 19 points in the first seven games. Only Napoli are ahead with 21 points and the Rossoneri are a force to be reckoned with this campaign. 

Milan will have what you could consider an easier schedule after the international break and will have to make the most of that. They have already faced Lazio, Juventus and Atalanta so the first seven games had their challenges.

Should they continue like this, then Pioli can expect to have his contract extended soon. The current deal will expire in 2022 but there is a one-year extension that the management currently intends to exercise.

In an interview at the Festival of Sport this evening, as cited by MilanNews, Pioli shared an update on the future and what his wish is. As you would expect, he wants to stay for many years so that he can experience the new stadium (will be ready in 2025 earliest).

On what the new football needs: “We need new structures. In Europe, the stadiums are much more modern and are used to welcoming a young audience. We could start with that to improve. I hope to be the manager of Milan at the new stadium.”
