At AC Milan, Stefano Pioli is in dire straits. The Italian coach is no longer in the odor of sanctity following AC Milan’s defeat by Atalanta Bergamo in the Italian Cup. His departure at the end of the season is almost a foregone conclusion. Thiago Motta, the current Bologna coach, is one of the potential replacements for the post of coach.
Since winning the Scudetto in 2022, Stefano Pioli has failed to retain the title for AC Milan. Worse still, the team’s performances have been up and down ever since. This season, things have not improved. The 2-1 defeat in the Italian Cup was certainly the last straw. Fans are calling for the coach to step down. Antonio Conte is their choice, but the Lombardy club may not be able to afford it. The reason is the high salary he could demand. The cheapest option is Thiago Motta. According to Tuttosport, the Bologna coach is the most likely candidate to take charge of the club next season.
