Sky: Two key figures will choose Milan’s next head coach with Rangnick on pole

By Oliver Fisher -

Ralf Rangnick is currently on pole to become the next AC Milan head coach, according to a report from the reliable Sky Italia.

There are conflicting rumours among the papers in Italy at present regarding whether Rangnick will arrive this summer, with some claiming that there has been a pre-agreement since December while others deny its existence and insist the situation is entirely up in the air.

However, according to what journalist Peppe Di Stefano has told (via MilanNews), the new Milan coach will be chosen directly by Hendrik Almstadt – the right-hand man of CEO Ivan Gazidis – and chief scout Geoffrey Moncada.

There is little chance of Stefano Pioli remaining, with his chances not being helped by the ongoing Coronavirus emergency. Therefore, Rangnick is still in pole position for the job, despite the slowdown.

In addition to this though, the names of Marcelino and Unai Emery are also mentioned as alternatives.
