Milan look at Sarri

Milan Coach Gennaro Gattuso could reportedly be at risk if they fail to qualify for Europe, with Maurizio Sarri being considered as an alternative.

The former midfielder only renewed his contract last month, but since then the Rossoneri have managed just two wins in seven across all competitions.

Wednesday night’s 4-0 defeat int the Coppa Italia final means the Diabolo are not yet guaranteed Europa League qualification, and Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting failure to reach Europe could put Ringhio under severe pressure.

The teams which finish 5th, 6th and 7th in Serie A will qualify, with the Diavolo currently in 6th.

However, there are still two games to play, and Atalanta are only a point behind, with Fiorentina a further two points behind them.

The newspaper believes that Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli could be replaced by Cristiano Giuntoli of Napoli.

He has a good relationship with Partenopei Coach Maurizio Sarri, and could look to bring the tactician north with him.

Sarri has an €8m release clause which is valid until the end of this month, but any move would be difficult after that as his contract runs until 2022.
