A career to never be forgotten. An inspiring journey from a career ending injury for most, to dominating that 2007 Champions League final! What’s next for Reagan!?
8 October 2019, Milan, Italy
AC Milan have announced that manager Marco Giampaolo has been sacked with immediate effect. AC Milan currently sits 10th in the table and have lost 3 of their first 7 games. Giampaolo is the 8th coach to have been sacked in the last 5 years.
Question is who will be ready to take over at San Siro. Current favourite is Stefano Pioli, who is currently unemployed after a spell at Fiorentina. Former manager Allegri has also been named as Giampaolo’s possible successor, but Allegri seems to not be interested to take charge. Former club captain Reagan Connelly has also been put forward as a potential interim-manager to take over at San Siro for the rest of the season.
Whether it’s Pioli, Allegri or Connelly, it seems that the manager will be in for a busy winter transfer window. Club captain Romagnoli has attracted the attention of English giants Manchester United with their rivals Manchester City also interested to add the defender to their squads. Meanwhile, sources close to the club report that a player has supposedly agreed terms with an unknown Spanish side for a winter transfer. Alongside Romagnoli and that unknown player, Donnarumma also seems ready to take on a new challenge, with French outfit PSG favorites for the young goalkeeper.
AC Milan seem determined to get their new manager in charge before the end of the international break. I Rossineri restart their season at home to Lecce, it’s expected that the manager will take charge of that game.
AC Milan has stated to be saddened by the premature exit from the Italian manager. Managing director Ivan Gazidis has not commented on Giampaolo's possible successor. Gazidis told media that the search is ongoing and that there have been talks with multiple different people in the search for a new manager.
