AC Milan Could Consider Keeping Pioli As Manager and Rangnick As Technical Director Next Season

New, comments

This plan seems unlikely but it has to be considered given the fluidity of the play seen in recent weeks and the outstanding results that accompanied this.

Antonio Vitiello is reporting that AC Milan will still go ahead with the radical summer reshuffle despite the recent results under Stefano Pioli since the restart. The side are unbeaten in 9 games in all competitions since the restart and are one win away from guaranteeing a Europa League qualification spot and 2 points behind 5th place. Vitiello notes that the results will not change the plans that have been in motion for months.

Corriere della Sera via MilanNews.it are reporting that there is some consideration being given to the possibility of Pioli staying on as head coach and Ralf Rangnick joining as the Technical Director this summer. The report notes that Rangnick's arrival is inevitable but his role could change given the recent results. Although this might seem attractive in the current moment, it seems unlikely from a financial point of view unless both Maldini and Massara leave freeing up the wage bill also there does not seem to be an overlap in the styles of play of Rangnick and Pioli.
