Boban: 'Pioli Milan's best option'

Milan director Zvonimir Boban doesn’t have “a magic wand” to fix the club, but insists Stefano Pioli “was the best option on the market and not a second choice.”

The Rossoneri sacked Marco Giampaolo after just 111 days at the helm, resulting in three wins and four defeats.

“I am working to make Milan great again, but I haven’t been here long and there is a lot of work to be done in every area,” Boban told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Pioli set up as just another Milan flop

Stefano Pioli is only the latest poor sap to take the thankless task of leading Milan, as Susy Campanale identifies the real culprits.

People have noted that political satires like The Thick of It and Veep are providing scenarios less ridiculous than the ones we see playing out on the news every day now. The chaos at AC Milan feels much the same. There comes a point when ‘banter era’ doesn’t really cover it. This is a club without a plan, a leader, an identity, just endless half-thought-out projects that are thrown out to the public before they’ve been properly vetted, then abandoned once enough negative feedback arrives.

Pioli to sign for Milan tonight

Stefano Pioli is expected to sign his Milan contract this evening and take charge of the first training session tomorrow, replacing Marco Giampaolo.

The decision seems to have been made and multiple reports including Sky Sport Italia point to Pioli’s agent Bruno Satin meeting Milan officials this afternoon.

They are working out the details of the two-year deal and Pioli will only join them when it is time to put pen to paper.

Milan stick or twist with Giampaolo?

Marco Giampaolo is already facing the Milan axe, but Emmet Gates doubts the alternatives like Luciano Spalletti and Stefano Pioli are any better.

As Franck Kessie casually placed the ball past Genoa goalkeeper Ionut Radu to give Milan the lead – and the win - last weekend, many believed this to be Marco Giampaolo’s saving grace. Judging from reports leading into the fixture, a defeat against Genoa would be Giampaolo’s last in charge of the Rossoneri.

Milan: Spalletti no, Pioli yes?

Milan could now go for Stefano Pioli or a foreign Coach as Luciano Spalletti is allegedly asking Inter for too much compensation.

Milan had targeted Spalletti to replace Marco Giampaolo and appeared to have agreed personal terms with the Coach.

However, the stumbling block has been a severance package with Inter, given he is under contract with them until 2021.

Spalletti or Pioli for Milan job?

Milan are taking time to consider Marco Giampaolo’s position, with Luciano Spalletti and Stefano Pioli reportedly the favourites, but there is one Gennaro Gattuso option.

The 2-1 win away to Genoa was not enough to take the pressure off this Coach, as the performance was still disappointing and lacking in any clear identity.
