Tuttosport: When Pioli is destined to leave Milan – early sacking not excluded

By Oliver Fisher -

Stefano Pioli will be the head coach of AC Milan until June at the latest, a report claims, though an early departure cannot be excluded.

Pioli was hired to replace the struggling Marco Giampaolo in October after the former Sampdoria boss had lasted just 111 days in charge.

Despite the change in management, results have not picked up as the Rossoneri have won just three of their first 10 games under the ex Lazio and Inter manager, the most recent game being a damaging 5-0 defeat to Lombardy neighbours Atalanta.

According to Tuesday’s edition of Tuttosport – as cited by Calciomercato.com – the relationship between Pioli and Milan is destined to last until June 2020 at the latest.

The newspaper adds though that there is the possibility, albeit remote, that he is sacked before then. If the results in 2020 do not improve, another change on the bench cannot be excluded, but Elliott Management wish to avoid this hypothesis.
