Tuttosport: Van Bommel, Conceicao, Fonseca and Galtier – Milan’s pursuit continues

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan’s search for a new coach is rumbling on with a variety of names continuing to be linked with the post, and the end of the season is fast approaching. 

As has been reported by Tuttosport (via Milan News), the likes of Mark van Bommel, Sergio Conceicao, Paulo Fonseca and Christoph Galtier are all credible names that Milan are considering as Stefano Pioli’s successor.

What is also suggested by the report is that Antonio Conte is not one of the frontrunners and it would take a change in situation for him to move ahead of some other names.

Milan want a coach who is used to using a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 formation as that is what best suits the crop of players currently at the club.

Van Bommel is currently in charge of Antwerp but he will be leaving the Belgian side at the end of the season. His understanding of the game has attracted Milan, but other clubs are showing interest in the Dutchman.

Portuguese duo Conceicao and Fonseca have been in the running for many weeks and both have very uncertain futures, whilst Galtier is a newer name.

After leaving Paris Saint-Germain, the Frenchman joined Al Duhail in Qatar.

  1. As I have always said Conte is not our solution, we need a long term plan, it’s good Conte is not considered, he is impetuous, arrogant, petulant and truth be told he is limited both tactically and technically, one thing I have noticed with modern football, having a strong and modern backroom staff is also imperative, which he doesn’t, Stellini is his assistant coach, who quite frankly falls into the circle of those Italian coaches who are timid.
    Out of all the Coaches mention in this article, Van Bommel would be the best option, as he is highly experienced, knows the club and the city, and will give our young players the they need, Conceico is very experienced and also a winner both as a player and a coach, but I doubt he will leave Porto.

  2. Conte is a dinosaur. His football tactics is old and outdated. We need a coach with new ideas. Someone who is versatile and bold to change formation during the game if needed to give us a chance of winning a difficult game.

    We need a coach who also knows what it takes to win trophies and this coach must have good experience in European competition particularly the UCL.

    For me only Sergio Conceição fits that bill and I hope we do everything possible to get him.
