Milan Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic’s future is reportedly up for discussion again, but a Coppa Italia win could save him.
The Serbian tactician has been under almost constant pressure this season and a defeat to Sassuolo followed by Sunday’s stalemate with Chievo is believed to have raised doubts.
Gazzetta dello Sport reports that President Silvio Berlusconi isn’t happy with the results and is considering a sacking before the end of the season if things get much worse.
The Coppa Italia final could be decisive with a win saving the Coach’s job, but defeat ensuring his dismissal.
The newspaper writes that Berlusconi has a different idea of football to Miha and would like to employ a new Coach to take the team in another direction.
However, the Rossoneri owner is aware that the Serbian still has the backing of the fans and therefore knows that it would be hard to fire him after a Coppa win.
Therefore Gazzetta suggests that Berlusconi’s only solution is to sack Mihajlovic before the final, with the next three games reportedly decisive and Primavera Coach Christian Brocchi ready to step in.
