Tuttosport: Pioli’s future to be decided within a month – how he could earn a renewal

By Oliver Fisher -

There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Stefano Pioli in recent weeks, and at the moment the reports that are emerging suggest that he is likely to remain in charge.

Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) write this morning that Pioli has always been publicly backed by president Paolo Scaroni, by CEO Giorgio Furlani and also by Zlatan Ibrahimović, the RedBird consultant and Gerry Cardinale’s right-hand man.

At the end of the win against Fiorentina, Pioli was asked about his future at Milan and the idea that he might walk away himself once the season is done. His response was a passionate one as he professed his love for the club and his desire to remain.

He has surpassed Arrigo Sacchi in the ranking of most games managed with 230 and he wants to continue his adventure at Milan. But until when?

Pioli still has no certainty, to date, that he will still be Milan’s coach in the 2024-25 season because the results from here until the end of the season will weigh a lot. However, is undeniable that the leadership currently thinking of moving forward with him.

His work, from 2019 to today, has been highly appreciated and he has a strong connection with the management and a solid relationship with his players. Therefore, Milan and Pioli should move forward together , albeit leaving an asterisk linked to the Europa League tie against Roma.

Milan would like to confirm Pioli simply until the natural expiry of his contract, set for 30 June 2025, so the topic of a renewal is not currently on their agenda. If that were the case, Pioli would start the new season with less than a year on his deal.

It is an anomaly in Italy, but not so much for a US ownership. The Europa League could become a factor in this story because if he were to win it – likely beating Leverkusen or Liverpool along the way – he could earn a new deal.

  1. IMO in order to stay Pioli has to finish this season in a strong fashion, and this include but not limited to:
    – Putting a good show in the EL FINAL, which means either win it or prove to be a good match (like reaching TABs or barely lose it because of individual mistakes). Failing to reach the final or losing in a horrific manner in the final is unacceptable.
    – Finishing the league race in a good way, which means winning most of the remaining games and prove to be more than target practise for inter and juve. A poor display against juve and particularly against inter might weight heavily against him for me.

  2. At this rate, just fired Pioli after the season end and then hanged him even if we placed 2nd at the league and maybe lost in semi final EL.

    I’m just bored af with all these rumor and people hate boner to fired Pioli as if he massacred someone family.

  3. Just wait for the season to end and we’ll see what happens. Stop wasting time on rumors. They don’t need to bother confirming him because he is already under contract till 2025, nor will they fire him just weeks before season ends.

  4. At the beginning I was open to letting him go in the summer. But the work he has done this season has been great, in spite of all the injuries even.

    I’d love to keep him next season.
