Milan coach Stefano Pioli will, according to Tuttosport, have the support of several players wanting him to stay at San Siro.
The Spanish winger Samu Castillejo claimed that the Rossoneri players “want Pioli to stay” in charge beyond the current campaign, after having seen improvement in both performances and results.
When Pioli replaced Marco Giampaolo after seven rounds, he signed a deal until June 2021 but reports regarding big changes at Milanello have sparked rumours also about the future of the head coach.
Red Bull director Ralph Rangnick has been linked with a sporting manager position, including the coaching responsibility, but Tuttosport claims that the players are opposing the suggested change in the dugout.
The newspaper writes that players like Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer and Ante Rebic have revelled under the former Fiorentina coach and claims they will support the statistics that speaks in the 54-year-old’s favour.
Pioli has won 9 of his first 22 games in charge at San Siro, picking up 27 points in his first 19 League games and the Diavolo are currently seventh in Serie A, three points behind Napoli at sixth.
