Gds: English club asked Stefano Pioli

The good work of Stefano Pioli last season has not gone unnoticed with Tottenham Hotspur interested in the AC Milan coach.

AC Milan, together with Atalanta, are the only among the top clubs of Serie A who have not changed coach. The management and players have maximum confidence in Stefano Pioli. The Italian coach brought the Rossoneri back to the Champions League after so many years. He succeeded in making his squad play attractive football enhancing many players. The Rossoneri had no doubts about confirming Pioli who has a contract until until June 2022.

La Gazzetta dello Sport analyzes Stefano Pioli’s situation, specifying that in the agreement with Milan there is a clause that allows the club to unilaterally extend his contract until June 2023. In reality he is the only coach whose contract expires this season and it will be necessary to see what moves Paolo Maldini, Frederic Massara and Ivan Gazidis will make.

The relationship between the parties is excellent but there is no rush to open discussions on the contract renewal. Pioli currently receives a salary of around 2 million euros net per season, lower than some of his colleagues who coach the main Italian clubs. In the event of an extension, it is normal for him to ask for a salary increase.

For now there are no meetings to discuss a new contract. Perhaps Milan want to wait and see how the team will perform at the start of the season. Maldini is currently busy with the transfer market and trying to improve the current roster. Pioli and his agents are not putting any pressure on the management, they are waiting. The coach works peacefully at Milanello, focused on giving his best. Despite the interest of important clubs like Tottenham, Pioli’s desire is to continue at the San Siro.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reveals that Tottenham Hotspur had inquired about Pioli after sacking Jose Mourinho. Despite the flattering interest of a club like Tottenham Pioli did not consider a transfer to London. Total loyalty towards AC Milan, which once the transfer campaign and the renewal of Kessie have been resolved should also speak with the coach.
