AC Milan have had their worst start to the season in a long time and in particular have lost 4 games in an opening 6 for the first time since the 1930s. Marco Giampaolo has had an incredible group of players to work with, much better than his predecessors such as Gennaro Gattuso, Vincenzo Montella and Sinisa Mihajlovic had. He has showed no discernible style of football nor any player management.

Following Milan's defeat to Fiorentina 3-1 on Sunday, the Milan management stayed back at the stadium with the new coach for over two hours in a crisis meeting. There are growing reports that Paolo Maldini and especially Zvonimir Boban are fed up with Giampaolo's poor play and are assessing their options to replace him. Maldini spoke to the media after the loss and expressed his disappointment but maintained that the club stands behind the coach for the moment.

However, reports today suggest that despite the seeming vote of confidence, Giampaolo is due to be sacked and replaced very soon. Milan were supposed to challenge for a Champions League spot in 2019/20 after missing out by a single point last season. Thus far, Milan have not looked like they could snag any European spots.

There were reports of a shortlist to replace Giampaolo that we covered here. Moreover, the players have not looked to be in sync with the coach which could accelerate his exit.
