Reports: Milan in-fighting over next coach

There are reports of in-fighting at Milan, with the hierarchy seemingly unable to agree upon the club’s coach for next season. However several newspapers suggest former Valencia coach Marcelino is the favourite.

Stefano Pioli is currently in charge of the Rossoneri, but it’s widely thought that Pioli won’t last longer than the end of the current campaign.

La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that Pioli’s only saving grace would be a potential Coppa Italia victory, or, less feasibly, finishing fourth and qualifying for the Champions League.

Milan back to basics

Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall looks at how Stefano Pioli has reinvigorated Milan by doing the simple things well.

Gheorghe Hagi once stated that the way to win was not all about having talent. He claimed that being organised and possessing the will to succeed was just as important as quality. Having a little bit of stardust on top of that obviously helps, but the basics done correctly are essential. Milan have been through a tumultuous time in recent years and tried many innovative ideas to get them out of it. Stefano Pioli has now come in to ‘steady the ship’ and after a stormy start, he perhaps can claim success by going back to the simplest of strategies.
