Milan: Pellegrini, Montella favourites

Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini and Sampdoria’s Vincenzo Montella are reportedly favourites for the Milan job.

Cristian Brocchi took over from Sinisa Mihajlovic on an interim basis last month but has failed to impress in the job so far.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the current Coach’s future is very uncertain and that he must secure Europa League qualification to have any chance of keeping the job.

However, the Rossoneri are already considering other options according to the outlet, including City boss Pellegrini.

Milan vice-President Adriano Galliani could watch him up close tomorrow at the Bernabeu as he has been invited by Real Madrid President Florentino Perez to attend the Champions League semi-final.

The Diavolo appreciate the Chilean Coach for his experience and awareness of what it’s like to work in difficult situations, according to the newspaper.

Montella’s name has again been linked with the position, despite the former Fiorentina Coach only joining Sampdoria earlier this season.

The ex-Roma striker would be ready to leave the Blucerchiati and is the strongest Italian candidate for the job, says the report.

Much will depend on what happens with the club’s ownership though, as talks for Silvio Berlusconi to sell the club are ongoing and it remains unclear who will be charged with finding a new Coach.
