Stefano Pioli appointed as AC Milan coach

Stefano Pioli appointed as AC Milan coach”

AC Milan have sacked manager Marco Giampaolo after only three and a half months in charge because of a poor start to the season. They should meet tomorrow.

AC Milan now sit 13th in the Serie A table - just three points above the relegation zone - having won three and lost four of their opening seven matches of the league season.

"The club intends to thank Marco for the activity carried out so far and wishes him the best professional successes".

Milan beat Genoa 2-1 on Saturday after Pepe Reina saved a penalty in injury time, but had three successive defeats before that, against rivals Inter, Torino and Fiorentina.

They responded with wins over Brescia and Hellas Verona but were then beaten 2-0 by Inter in the Milan derby.

Luciano Spalletti, who left Inter at the end of last season and was replaced by Antonio Conte, has been mentioned as a possible candidate.

Pioli is a former Inter Milan and Lazio boss and has vast experience as a coach, beginning his career in 1999, and was Milan's No 1 target to take over the role.

Pioli's immediate task will be to inspire a side sitting 13th in Serie A after seven matches, already 10 points adrift of leaders and defending champions Juventus.

Giampaolo was appointed following Gennaro Gattuso departure the summer after Milan missed out on a top four finish on the final day of the past campaign.
