Reports: Giampaolo at ‘serious risk’ of being sacked; next 24 hours crucial

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Marco Giampaolo is at ‘serious risk’ of being sacked, according to two very reliable sources.

The Rossoneri managed to halt their three-game losing streak at Genoa on Saturday night as goals from Theo Hernandez and Franck Kessie propelled the team to a 2-1 win.

There was plenty of drama though; with four red cards (two to bench players) and two penalties, the latter of which was saved in added time by Pepe Reina to preserve the three points.

Gianluca Di Marzio is claiming that despite the win, Giampaolo is still at risk of being relieved of his duties, with the club ‘pondering making a change’.

‘Anything is possible at this point’, the report claims, but with the international break beckoning Giampaolo’s position has never been weaker.

Meanwhile, MilanNews.it‘s Pietro Mazzara claims that ‘the clouds on Giampaolo’s head are increasingly black’ with the club reflecting on the situation.

Definitive indications are expected within the next 24-36 hours, but for Milan to dismiss the former Sampdoria boss the replacement would have to be lined up.

Rudi Garcia’s name continues to climb, the report adds, while other more expensive coaches could arrive if they accept the possible proposal of Boban and Maldini.
