Gilardino set for managerial break?

Ex-Milan, Fiorentina and Italy striker Alberto Gilardino could make his breakthrough in management at Serie C side Monopoli.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, the 36-year-old could replace Giuseppe Scienza after he left the Apulian club by mutual consent.

Monopoli finished eighth in Serie C Group C last season, before suffering elimination in the playoff first round to Reggina.

Gilardino, meanwhile, retired from football last September to focus on coaching and led Serie D outfit Rezzato to a fourth-place finish, although they lost 4-2 to Pro Sesto in the promotion playoffs.
