Vincenzo Montella has reportedly been offered a new job as Coach of the Iran national team.

Juve reviving ex-Milan flops

Leonardo Bonucci and Mattia De Sciglio look like different players in the Juventus jersey than at Milan, explains Matthew Santangelo.

Winding the clock back two summers ago to a very bizarre transfer window in Italy, Leonardo Bonucci – a fundamental pillar in the famed ‘BBC’ of the Azzurri and Bianconeri - left for Milan after a falling out with manager Massimiliano Allegri.

Gattuso's last Milan chance

Gennaro Gattuso is about to find out he is just as sackable as any of his Milan predecessors if he doesn't convincingly beat SPAL, writes Daryl Hammond.

One wonders how often both a Coach and youth team boss have been sacked in a week. With Milan Primavera boss Alessandro Lupi shown the door, many think senior boss Gennaro Gattuso may see the same fate should his Milan side secure a less than favourable result against SPAL this evening.

Sousa ready to take Roma job?

Roma could sack Eusebio Di Francesco if he doesn’t beat Genoa on Sunday, with Paulo Sousa reportedly ready to accept a six-month contract.

The tactician took them to third place in Serie A and the Champions League semi-final last season, but their form has stuttered badly this term, partly due to an injury crisis.

Despite already booking their place in the Champions League Round of 16, the Giallorossi are under pressure and widely expected to fire Di Francesco if he doesn’t change their domestic fortunes fast.
