La Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that AC Milan are in a coaching crises ahead of their return from the international break against Napoli on the road. Milan's manager Stefano Pioli and his assistant Giacomo Murelli have both tested positive for the coronavirus in the past week and are thus in self isolation. Milan are thus likely to entrust former defender Daniele Bonera to take the helm for the crunch tie against another former Milan player and manager in Gennaro Gattuso this weekend.

MilanNews.it are reporting that Milan have decided to give Bonera the go ahead to take charge for the game. Bonera has the UEFA A license that is required to coach in Serie A as he completed his course at Coverciano in September. Bonera will reportedly work with the match analysts and will be directed by Pioli remotely as Milan look to continue their unbeaten run in Serie A.
