Schiavone: Pioli must beat Sassuolo and Empoli – replacement already lined up

By Oliver Fisher -

Yet another source is claiming that Oliver Glasner has been in talks with AC Milan and is poised to take over if the decision is made to sack Stefano Pioli.

Independent journalist Ronald Morgan reported yesterday that Milan have been in talks with the Austrian coach Glasner for ‘a while’ and he would be very keen to take the job should it become available. 

Now, Alessandro Schiavone – who works for Gianluca Di Marzio and MilanNews among others – not only thinks Glasner is lined up but also that there is an ultimatum in place regarding Stefano Pioli. He claims that Glasner will go to Milan if Pioli fails to take maximum points from the games against Sassuolo and Empoli.

Negotiations are ‘at an advanced stage’ between the Milan board and the Austrian but two wins and an upturn in performances would put everything on stand-by for the time being in terms of dismissing Pioli.

Glasner is most known for his time with Eintracht Frankfurt, when during his first season they won the Europa League, beating West Ham United and Barcelona in the process. In his last season with the Bundesliga side, he took them to the Round of 16 in the Champions League.

  1. And they’ll probably give him a long contract too, 2.5 years, so no De Zerbi, Motta or anyone else in the summer, as Glasner probably isn’t going to accept being a 5 month caretaker. The die is cast.

  2. You have Flick avaliable! But when redbird prefers Bayern Leverkusen coach instead of Bayern Munich coach, that speaks volumes about how ambitious they really are. This team wont go anywhere further than average with redbird ownership. We become Sevila like club smh.

    1. Flick literally never built a squad and this genius is pretending like he is some sort of long experienced coach who everyone wants


  3. Hiring a non Italian coach is not the smartest idea.
    From the moment he signs the media will start a vicious campaign against him just because he is not Italian.

  4. Pioli is to be Fired even milan beat Sossoalo and Empoli ,Pioli is thw one who uses Floerenzi and Kjear instead of Simic and Bertazaghi
    Florwnzi Giroud and Kjear never gets Market Price if they are 100% lined up.
    Look Krunic did get Market Price Pioli used him untill he led us down .
    The Nofradi Coach said milan are the team that has the most talents in Serie A ,but who utilized them they ended in nothing because of Pioli Barriers

  5. Milan should just bring in a new coach regardless. Glasner is a good coach. He would be a good coup for Milan and the best option on the market.

    He has more experience than De Zerbi, Motta, and Farioli who are more risky options.

    Di Zerbi has a buyout clause of 10m if any team wants to sign him then they will have to pay up. So Di Zerbi will not arrive at Milan.

    Conte is an overrated coach who blames everyone for his failure.

  6. Anyone else worried about an Austrian coach taking over a club with a pressure to win in a league he’s never coached in before?

  7. How come he’s without a club if he’s one of the brightest out there? I see he used high pressing 343 with Frankfurt which could work with the rooster we have at disposal.

    1. How come Conte is without a club? How come Spalletti was without a club for a year before taking Napoli? Calm down, it happens. A lot.

      1. Hey calm your tits, I’m not trying to provoke or being rhetorical. I’m actually asking because I don’t know the man but I read a lot of good stuff about him.
