Milan decide Montella’s fate despite Sassuolo result

AC Milan face tomorrow Sassuolo in a match that is expected to be decisive for the future of Montella. The rossoneri are in great need of 3 points.

For several weeks there have been continuous talks regarding the future of Vincenzo Montella as AC Milan coach. His position does not look very safe at the moment, considering the disappointing results obtained till now by the rossoneri.

The club has confirmed, after a recent days internal meeting, that Montella will lead the team even against Napoli. Pellegatti reports: “The club had as plan A Champions League qualification but for now plan B is Europa League qualification, and it is more feasible.”
