AC Milan are not going to part ways with head coach Stefano Pioli in the wake of the 2-2 draw against Salernitana on Friday night, but the situation has certainly gotten more serious.
As has been reported by Sky Sport Italia (via Milan News), the Rossoneri are going to stand by their coach and give him at least one more game in charge of the team.
The draw with Salernitana only happened because of Luka Jovic’s late equaliser, meaning they very nearly lost to a team many feel are destined for Serie B.
The repeated injuries and the inconsistent form that has seen Juventus and Inter pull away from the Rossoneri means that Pioli is under increased pressure.
There have been serious reflections on his position during the morning, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic expected to be one of the people central to whatever decision is taken.
Milan’s next match is against Sassuolo at San Siro on December 30. That is the sort of game Milan must win and were they to do anything but, it would not be a surprise to see Milan part ways with Pioli in an attempt to salvage the season and make sure that they at least finish in the top four.
