RR: Torino president keen on hiring Giampaolo – why Milan can smile

By Isak Möller -

Marco Giampaolo’s adventure at AC Milan ended after just two months, failing to put his stamp on the team. The 52-year-old is still under contract with the club, but that could seemingly change in the near future. 

Torino sacked Walter Mazzarri back in February and are now looking for a manager, having appointed Moreno Longo as a caretaker until the end of the season. By the looks of it, their next manager could come from Milan.

According to Radio Rossonera’s Pietro Balzano Prota, Torino are very interested in hiring Marco Giampaolo, an idea that president Urbano Cairo holds in high regard. The manager’s contract will expire in 2021, meaning he’s still on Milan’s wage bill.

In other words, should the former Sampdoria boss join the Turin side, then the Rossoneri would save €2m net. Per the report, sporting director Davide Vagnati is also keeping tabs on Leonardo Semplici and he doesn’t mind Stefano Pioli.
