Sinisa Mihajlovic could be sacked before the Coppa Italia Final, as Milan President Silvio Berlusconi dined with Cristian Brocchi tonight. claim Adriano Galliani called Mihajlovic this afternoon to tell him about the dismissal.

Miha was in Rome with his family during the two days off given to the team following a 2-1 defeat to Juventus on Saturday.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sky Sport Italia and other sources, Berlusconi welcomed current Primavera youth team tactician Brocchi to his Arcore residence.

Sky Sport Italia suggest Brocchi was accompanied by his assistant manager Alessandro Lazzarini.

An announcement is expected tomorrow morning rather than tonight. Brocchi will become the fifth Milan Coach in the last three years.

CEO Galliani would prefer they either keep Miha or go for Marcello Lippi, while Arrigo Sacchi advised Milan approach Sassuolo boss Eusebio Di Francesco.
