The Milan brass aren’t currently considering axing Stefano Pioli. However, two further negative results against PSG and Lecce would lead to profound reflections about what’s going on and what to do. They haven’t contacted any other coach at the moment, Matteo Moretto informs (via SOSFanta).
The Rossoneri had a strong start but have short-circuited following October’s international break. They have endured three losses, against Juventus, the Ligue 1 champions, and Udinese. Moreover, they squandered a two-nothing lead over Napoli.
Unless the trend continues or even worsens, the Milan hierarchy plans to take stock with Pioli only at the end of the season, as they usually do. At this stage, the boss isn’t in immediate peril.
In addition, firing a gaffer and appointing a new one has considerable costs. They’d target a high-profile one. Their American ownership is always attentive to balancing the books. The current boss is contracted until 2025. He has relatively low wages compared to some of his Serie A colleagues, making €4.5M annually.
Our Take on Milan and Pioli
It’d be quite surprising if he weren’t given the chance to turn things around. Their front office is far from mercurial and impulsive. But, like all managers in this situation, he’ll need to right the ship quickly to prevent dark clouds from gathering over his head.
