Giampaolo is now the 8th coach to be fired in the span of 5 years since Massimiliano Allegri was at the helm and lasted a measly 111 days - the lowest in Milan's history. The former Sampdoria and Empoli boss was only able to grab nine points out of a possible twenty one and played a terrible brand of football that was unappealing and ineffective leading to Milan only scoring six goals in those seven games. Milan currently sit at thirteenth place in the league only three points away from the relegation zone.

Giampaolo will reportdely be replaced by Stefano Pioli who formerly managed Fiorentina and Inter Milan tomorrow. There is huge discontent over the new manager and Milan Twitter has managed to get the hashtag #PioliOut trending worldwide before any contract has even been signed. The future looks bleak for our historic club, but as always we move forward.
