AC Milan have moved quickly to name their new manager by appointing Stefano Pioli at the helm.
The Italian has signed a two-year deal at the San Siro as he replaces Marco Giampaolo who was sacked by the club on Tuesday.
The club becomes the 53-year-old’s latest stop in his home country having previously been in charge of 13 different clubs within the last 16 years including Serie A giants Inter Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina. His last post came with the latter before resigning in April 2019.
Pioli now takes over an AC Milan side who have endured an extremely inconsistent start to the 2019/20 campaign. The club currently sit in 13th position having lost four out of their opening seven games.
They have also struggled in front of goal, only managing to find the back of the net on six occasions, an aspect that Pioli will striving to improve considering an estimated outlay of just under £100m during the summer on transfers.
Even at this early stage of the season, AC Milan are already ten points behind league leaders and reigning champions Juventus. They are not much fancied to challenge for the crown this season as a result with a price of 275/1 with Paddy Power to win the league.
