AC Milan have moved swiftly to appoint Stefano Pioli as manager to replace Marco Giampaolo who was sacked earlier on Tuesday.
Giampaolo’s almost 4 months reign in the Milan dugout was cut short following the Rossoneri’s stuttering start to the new season, leaving the seven-time European champions 13th on the Serie A log.
The ex Sampdoria boss thus becomes the shortest serving full time Milan manager with his 111 days in charge of the club. He recorded four defeats and three victories, scoring six goals and conceding nine during his seven games in charge.
Pioli, 53, who worked at Parma, Chievo, Bologna, Lazio, Inter and Fiorentina, is expected to sign a one-year contract by tomorrow.
The former Lazio coach becomes the ninth manager to handle the Diavolo since Max Allegri’s exit in 2014.
He’s also the eighth manager to have had the privilege of coaching both Inter and Milan.
