Gennaro Gattuso doesn’t just need to beat SPAL and Frosinone to keep his Milan job, it’s reported, but also improve performances, with Arsene Wenger lying in wait.
The Rossoneri slipped out of the top four after Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Fiorentina.
That was their third consecutive Serie A match without finding the back of the net, following 0-0 draws with Torino and Bologna.
According to multiple sources, Gattuso must win the two remaining fixtures of 2018 against relegation battlers Frosinone on December 26 and SPAL on December 29.
Even that might not be enough, as if he doesn’t also win convincingly with much stronger performances, then Gattuso could still get the chop.
The hot favourite to take over is former Arsenal legend Wenger, currently out of work after decades in London.
Another issue troubling the club is the role of Primavera youth team Coach.
That is because Alessandro Lupi is widely expected to be fired today.
Potential Primavera tacticians include former players Federico Giunti, Marco Simone and Ibrahim Ba.
