AC Milan lost 2-1 against Torino on Thursday night despite playing their best half of football this season. The reports of Giampaolo being on thin ice have been amplified as the results and play has generally been unconvincing.
Corriere dello Sport is reporting that Milan have a shortlist of Gennaro Gattuso, Claudio Ranieri and Luciano Spalletti to replace their new manager if he cannot win convincingly at home versus Fiorentina.
