Stefano Pioli is surely the most under-appreciated coach working in Serie A. His longest tenure came at Bologna between 2011 and 2014, keeping the Rossoblu up in his two seasons. Since then, he led Lazio to the Champions League playoffs in 2015, stabilised Inter after the Frank de Boer debacle and saw Fiorentina through the death of their captain. He is having a similar effect on Milan, despite his position being publicly undermined. Palermo, however, didn’t even give him three games.
