Tuttosport: Ex-Milan boss Giampaolo and current boss Pioli on Serie A side’s shortlist

By Oliver Fisher -

Torino are considering the appointment of both Marco Giampaolo and Stefano Pioli as their next head coach, according to reports.

Pioli of course took over from Giampaolo back in October after the latter had suffered a terrible start to the season, lasting just 111 days in charge in total.

Giampaolo has been out of work since and is technically contracted until 2021, and while the consensus is that Pioli has done a good job since his arrival, he looks set to leave this summer with Ralf Rangnick heavily linked.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Torino are exploring the possibility of appointing a new manager, and among the names in their notebook is Giampaolo.

The Turin-based newspaper adds (via Calciomercato) that in addition to the former Sampdoria boss, the Granata are also looking at Pioli, presumably should he lose his current job as head coach of the Rossoneri, which seems increasingly likely.
