AC Milan has not sacked Marco Giampaolo from the position of head coach. However, club directors are considering dismissing Giampaolo and are summarizing several names as replacements.
Marco Giampaolo did not give a good performance for AC Milan at the start of the 2019/2020 season. The ex-Sampdoria coach was not even able to mix the right tactics and be understood by the players.
Despite their win over Genoa in their last match, Giampaolo’s position is still not safe. Quoted from Sky Sports, Milan Director, Zvonimir Boban was very disappointed and intended to immediately dismiss the coach.
However, there is Paolo Maldini who kept the club from taking quick decisions. Maldini’s club gives even more opportunities. However, dismissal options remain the main choice.
Still quoting Sky Sports, there is one figure that is a dream of Milan if you replace Giampaolo. The coach is none other than Luciano Spalletti, the coach who worked for Inter Milan last season.
Some Italian media said Luciano Spalletti had refused an offer to coach Milan. However, now Spalletti is not under contract with any club. The option of training Milan is believed to still be chosen.
Besides, Gennaro Gattuso is also included in the new Milan coach candidate. However, there is one problem that is quite complicated if Milan appoints Gattuso. Gattuso and Paolo Maldini’s relationship is not good enough.
Gattuso became Milan coach in the 2018/2019 season. Although with limited financial resources, Gattuso is considered to bring Milan to perform quite well. Milan closed the 2018/2019 season in fifth place in the Serie A final standings.
In addition to the two names above, Arsene Wenger is also called a new Milan coach candidate. Wenger has a long experience in football with Arsenal. Wenger is now not bound by any club.
Another senior coach associated with Milan is Claudio Ranieri. The man who brought Leicester City to the Premier League champions is not yet bound by a contract with another club after retiring with AS Roma last season.
AC Milan is also said to be weighing the names of Rudi Garcia [ex-Roma coach], Stefano Pioli [ex-Inter Milan coach], and Marcelino Garcia Toral [ex-Valencia coach].
