Marco Giampaolo was officially fired yesterday with Stefano Pioli becoming the new coach of the Diavolo.
Giampaolo was the choice of Paolo Maldini, Boban and Frederic Massara for the coach position in the summer.
However, after three months in which the Rossoneri achieved bad results and played some of their worst football in recent memory, the club decided it was time to change and replace him.
“Milan announces it has relieved Marco Giampaolo from his position as coach of the First Team. The Club is grateful to Marco for the work carried out and wishes him all the best to come in his professional career,” a statement on the Diavolo’s website read on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, it became official that Stefano Pioli, the former Inter and Fiorentina coach, is the one replacing Giampaolo: “Milan announces the appointment with immediate effect of Stefano Pioli as the new coach of the First Team.
“Born in October 1965 in Parma, Stefano Pioli began his career as a coach in 1999. His first coaching experience in Serie A was at Parma in 2006. He then went on to coach several other Serie A Clubs: Chievo Verona, Palermo, Bologna, Lazio and Inter, before moving to Fiorentina in 2017. Stefano Pioli now joins Milan on a two-year agreement. The Club wishes Stefano and his coaching staff all the best in their work.”
