AC Milan sack coach Giampaolo after dismal start

AC Milan Marco Giampaolo

The 52-year-old replaced Gennaro Gattuso in the fashion capital of the world in June, signing a two-year deal with an optional third year.

Spalletti is seeking a €10 million gross pay-off whilst Inter are believed to have only offer somewhere in the region of €3-4 million.

AC Milan have appointed Stefano Pioli as their new coach, the Serie A club said on Wednesday, handing him a two-year contract in the hope he will turn around the fortunes of the seven-time European champions. They should meet tomorrow.

AC Milan have sacked manager Marco Giampaolo after a poor start to the Serie A season.

The Italian giants sit 13th in the Serie A table, having lost four of their opening seven fixtures, including a 2-0 defeat by rivals Inter.

Milan now sit 13th in the Serie A table, with Giampaolo having won just three of his first seven matches in charge of the Rossoneri having been hired over the summer from Sampdoria.

Milan only hired Giampaolo in the summer but parted company with the ex-Sampdoria manager following a hard start to the campaign, which saw them languishing in 13th place with four defeats from their opening seven matches.

Pioli's last job was at Fiorentina, whom he left in April during his second season in charge.

Pioli is a former Inter Milan and Lazio boss and has vast experience as a coach, beginning his career in 1999, and was Milan's No 1 target to take over the role.
