Schira: Shevchenko offered to Milan as caretaker head coach – the response

By Oliver Fisher -

Andriy Shevchenko has been offered to #ACMilan by some intermediaries as a possible caretaker manager, according to what is being reported by one journalist.

Milan failed to rise to the big occasion as they were beaten 3-1 by Borussia Dortmund last night at San Siro, and the result means a miracle is needed for last-16 qualification in the Champions League.

This has led to growing calls for a change in management and Tuttosport reported on Wednesday that the trust of the management in Stefano Pioli is at its lowest point because of the results and injuries.

According to Nicolo Schira, Shevchenko’s name his been put forward by some intermediaries as a coach until June, therefore an interim role similar to what was initially expected of Pioli.

However, his profile doesn’t fully convince Milan’s management. Schira adds a reminder that Pioli’s contract (€4.2m net per year) expires in 2025 and so there would be a pay-out involved.

    1. You are dreaming mate. Sheva was my favourite player, who will never be forgotten but if Pioli leaves then he is not the right profile to take this team forward…none of our ex-players(legends) are fit to be the Mister .

      1. Yes but last time he was manager was at Genoa who’s not even that rich but if he comes to Milan he will be allowed to buy as much players as he want i am really hoping him or pirlo who will be in Milan as manager

        1. No offense but “if he comes to Milan he will be allowed to buy as much players as he want” is a pretty delusional statement,, where have you bean as the club works on a limited budget unless we actually sell our star players.

  1. To my knowledge doesn’t coaches who get sacked at italian clubs just stay on the payroll until they find a new club ? at least it was the practice previously.
    As much as i would like schevchenko as a coach for our attackers i wouldnt give him the job at milan if we were to sack pioli.

  2. Sheva did well with Ukraine. His Genoa record is bad but we’re talking about an 18th place team at the time run by 777 partners. I’m not sure you can use THAT as an example. For me he lacks a bit of experience but given his profile,… I think he’ll do fine.

    With regards to Pirlo, his club record is very underwhelming.

        1. Not to mention that Sampdoria is currently placed 12th in Serie B as a relegated team from Serie A, I sorta wonder why he hasn’t been sacked there yet.

  3. Shevchenko is extremely mediocre, even below mediocre, coach. He should be nowhere close to Milan bench. Actually, he should be nowhere close to any Serie B club bench. Plus, he is a traitor since he left ACM to play for Russian guy in Chelsea!!!

    1. He is certainly no traitor to AC Milan and actually wanted to stay with AC Milan but his wife and kids pushed for the move to England if i recall correctly.
      Im also pretty sure that the common people of ukraine doesnt consider him a traitor either as times was different back then but im sure if ukranians nowadays join the russian league they would consider it a betrayal if that is what you even are hinting at,

  4. If it’s a joke, stop it.

    Better leave Pioli there until we figure out a reliable coach.
    The team does nit need only a coach that is tactically sound, but that also commands respect from the players and gives them all the confidence they need.

    With all the good will Shevi would have, I don’t see him achieving much but more confusion.
