Milan to sack Giampaolo?

Despite the 2-1 win at Genoa last night, there are increasing reports Milan will fire Coach Marco Giampaolo.

He had been considered at risk unless he won at Marassi, emerging with a 2-1 result thanks to Theo Hernandez and a Franck Kessie penalty.

However, multiple sources including Sky Sport Italia and news agency Ansa claim the unconvincing performance was not enough to save his job.

Director Zvonimir Boban is particularly harsh on Giampaolo, while Paolo Maldini had been in favour of patience with the ex-Sampdoria boss.

His initial choices against Genoa, dropping Rafael Leao, Lucas Paqueta and Ismael Bennacer, raised eyebrows, especially as it was only after Leao and Paqueta came off the bench that Milan started to create chances.

Options to replace Giampaolo include Stefano Pioli, Claudio Ranieri, Luciano Spalletti and Arsene Wenger.
