The coaching position at Milan has been problematic for several years. Perhaps, there would have been less difficulties if the club’s management had allowed the specialists to work properly. Marco Giampaolo worked at the head of the Rossoneri under a lot of pressure from the directors. Now Stefano Pioli is in the same situation. Outwardly, the Italian does not show signs of excitement, but he is well aware that he can leave Milan at any moment.
The issue of Allegri’s return was raised several times by the Pilipino star ngayon management at the beginning of 2020. In January, the Rossoneri seriously considered a specialist who had previously spent 4 years at the club. In February, the leadership returned to his candidacy. The idea of returning Allegri was supported by Boban and Maldini. The latter wanted to see his former teammate Andriy Shevchenko at the head of the team, but he has not yet completed his work in the national team of Ukraine. Shevchenko will not consider club options until at least the end of the European championship.
Milan’s interest in Allegri is understandable. Max was the last coach with whom the Rossoneri won the scudetto and claimed it. But it is questionable whether Allegri himself will want to return to AC Milan:
- This seems unlikely for now.
- The Italian does not hide his interest in working abroad.
- Apparently, the specialist has set his sights on working in the Premier League, since he has been recently studying English assiduously.
Allegri remains an option for AC Milan, but the Rossoneri will find it difficult to get their former coach back. The specialist is one of the main candidates for the post of Newcastle coach. The Italian is second in the list of Saudis after Mauricio Pochettino. In addition, PSG are interested in Allegri’s services. According to L’equipe, Parisian sports Director Leonardo is seriously considering max to replace Thomas Tuchel, who may leave the French capital in a few months. Probably, these options will be more important for Allegri than returning to AC Milan.
There is a chance that Pioli will still remain in charge of Milan for at least another 1 season. During the crisis, the Rossoneri management began to think about leaving the coach for some time. First, Pioli has a relatively low salary. Secondly, the club can allocate him less money for transfers than any other of the three above-mentioned candidates. In addition, Zlatan Ibrahimovic liked Pioli. If the Italian remains at the helm of the team, the chances will increase that the Swede will also extend his contract with the Rossoneri.
Pioli’s contract with Milan runs until summer of 2021. Even when signing the agreement, the Rossoneri management set an oral condition for the specialist: he must either win the Italian Cup or lead the red-blacks to the Champions League. If you perform at least one of these tasks, the chances of the coach to continue working with the Milan club will increase significantly. The probability of Milan getting into the Champions League is low. The distance from the LCH zone is 12 points. It is almost impossible to win back such a gap before the end of the season. Pioli’s only hope is the Italian Cup. Milan managed to play the first match of the 1/2 final against
Juventus. The match ended with a score of 1: 1. The Rossoneri still have a chance to reach the final of the tournament, if it is finished.
The situation with the ph news crisis may also benefit Pioli. It is still unclear what will happen with the season in Italy. The government does not give any guarantees for the resumption of Series A in the coming months. Clubs continue to lose money, and Milan’s financial situation was already imperfect.
