AC Milan were close to appointing Luciano Spalletti as their manager but the move collapsed in the last minute because of financial disagreements and they had to appoint Stefano Pioli as their manager.
Pioli was an uninspiring appointment back then and the fanbase were completely against it. The Milan fans managed to trend #PioliOut on social media after his appointment but the Italian has done remarkably well to win over his critics so far.
Not only has he improved AC Milan’s results he has improved their style of play as well.
The Italian giants are now exciting to watch and they could well be challenging for the titles in the coming years.
The Italian outfit have improved going forward and they have been transformed into an impressive attacking unit now. Under Pioli, Milan have played 41 games, winning 24, drawing 11 and losing just six. They have scored 88 goals in that time and conceded just 52, while averaging 2.02 points per game.
It will be interesting to see if Pioli can lead the club back to their former glories in the coming seasons.
Milan have got some talented young players at their disposal and they have the bones of a good team.
If they continue to develop and improve under their new manager, it won’t be long before they are challenging the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan for the top honours.
