It’s no longer a secret. Stefano Pioli is no longer the unanimous choice at AC Milan. Last weekend’s 3-2 defeat by Atalanta Bergamo was certainly the last straw. While his dismissal may be imminent, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to step in as interim coach.
For several weeks, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return to AC Milan had been rumoured. The official announcement simply hasn’t happened, as his role has clearly not been defined. But now the Lombardy club know where they need the Swede. According to La Repubblica, the former Barcelona striker could take over as technical director. If current coach Stefano Pioli is sacked, the club’s management could ask him to act as interim manager until a fully qualified coach arrives. But nothing is official yet.
