Stefano Pioli was officially appointed as AC Milan’s new head coach on Wednesday (9/10/2019), replacing Marco Giampaolo. Pioli was signed for two years in hopes of changing the fate of the seven-time European champion.
“AC Milan announced the appointment of Stefano Pioli as the first team’s new coach,” the Milan statement said. “The club wishes Stefano and his coaching staff the best in their work.”
The Rossoneri cut ties with Giampaolo on Tuesday (10/08/2019) after taking charge of seven competitive matches, despite a 2-1 win over Genoa on Saturday.
Giampaolo led Milan to lose four of their first seven Serie A matches this season. The former Sampdoria coach was only 111 days in the Rossoneri hot seat.
Pioli has coached seven previous Serie A teams, including Lazio and Inter Milan. His last job was at Fiorentina, which he left in April.
Pioli spent nearly six months dealing with Inter, joined in November 2016 and lost his job in May 2017, while he also worked with Lazio.
Born in October 1965 in Parma, Pioli began his career as a coach in 1999. His first coaching experience in Serie A was at Parma in 2006.
Pioli then went on to train several other Serie A clubs, such as Chievo Verona, Palermo, Bologna, Lazio and Inter Milan, before moving to Fiorentina in 2017. AC Milan won their last 18 Serie A titles in 2011.
