The (good) times of Sacchi, Capello and Ancelotti, of long and winning cycles, seem really far away. In recent years, it has been far from easy to lead AC Milan, and the numbers certainly don’t lie in this regard.
As today’s edition of Tuttosport points out (via MilanNews.it), from the 13th of January 2014 to today, the Rossoneri have had eight managers in the last seven (!) seasons. Of course, this explains a lot of the inconsistency at the club.
In the summer, the list could be further extended as Stefano Pioli’s future remains uncertain. Disappointments and sackings, although not all of them have been justified. Just think about Seedorf, Mihajlovic and Rino Gattuso.
The latter had a very positive season and missed out on the Champions League by just one point. The owners satisfied with the work done by the current manager (who replaced Marco Giampaolo), but nevertheless Pioli’s position remains in the balance.
Ivan Gazidis has already had contacts with Ralf Rangnick, who is the ideal profile according to the Rossoneri’s CEO. However, the German is yet to answer. It remains to be seen if he would become the technical director and manager or just the former.
