Ralf Rangnick is ready to snub the agreement he has with AC Milan’s owners Elliott Management over a role at the club, a report claims.
Multiple outlets have reported that the German will take over from both Stefano Pioli and Ricky Massara, ensuing a role unprecedented in Italian football as a head coach and sporting director in one.
However, another twist has arrived. According to what Sky in Germany are reporting, Rangnick ‘will not switch to Milan for the time being’ and ‘a possible deal is unlikely to come about’.
The report claims that there was likely a general agreement between Rangnick and the Milan ownership Elliott Management, but the current Red Bull Head of Football is now unlikely to accept the role as sporting director and head coach.
After his dismissal on Saturday, Zvonimir Boban spoke in an interview with Il Giornale during which he claimed that an agreement had been reached some time ago.
“You made a deal with Rangnick in December,” he said.
However, Rangnick responded to this rumour in a defiant way on Sunday, stating: “This is definitely not true.”
