AC Milan sack Marco Giampaolo after 7 matches in Serie A.
Milan have officially part ways with Marco Giampaolo and are expected to bring a replacemental soon who is suspected to be Fiorentina and Inter boss Stefano Pioli.
Under this manager Milan has considered four defeats in the opening seven rounds.
The club wrote, “AC Milan announce that Marco Giampaolo has been removed from the post of first team Coach. The club wishes to thank Marco for the work done and wish him all the best in his professional career.”
Giampaolo took over from Gennaro Gattuso over the summer, having spent the past three seasons establishing Sampdoria as a Serie A team.
However, four defeats in his first seven League games was exacerbated by poor performances and a lack of supporter confidence.
The ex-Sampdoria Coach also came under fire for scrapping his famed 4-3-1-2 formation after just one match.
The Diavolo hoped to bring in Luciano Spalletti, but Inter were unable to agree a severance package with the Coach.
As a result, Milan have moved for Pioli, who is likely to put pen to paper on a one-year contract with the option of a second.
He is widely considered an underwhelming choice, given he failed with Inter and has not won any senior silverware in 16 years as a Coach.
