CEO Ivan Gazidis has his heart set on bringing Ralf Rangnick to AC Milan, a report claims, but that may not mean the end for Stefano Pioli.
According to Wednesday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive), Gazidis wants to bet strongly on Rangnick and would be ready to entrust him with the dual role of head coach and sporting director.
For the moment, however, a definitive answer has not yet arrived from the German because first he wants to have more certainties on what the project will be. Should he say yes to the Milan proposal, he would then decide whether to land at Casa Milan as a manager or as director, or to cover both positions.
In the event that Rangnick should ultimately choose to be only the sporting director, the chances of keeping Stefano Pioli on the bench would increase significantly. The club is also evaluating other profiles, but Pioli’s work in this season has been much appreciated.
