Former AC Milan chief Marco Fassone supports the appointment of Stefano Pioli.
The former Fiorentina coach stepped in after the dismissal of Marco Giampaolo.
Fassone said, “Pioli found himself at Inter a few years ago and managed to turn a complex situation around. He is now in a similar position with Milan, but the pressure is on, being only four points away from the relegation zone.”
On hiring Rino Gattuo, he also told TMW: “I consider Rino to be an excellent coach who has qualities that go beyond his reputation of just being a gritty figure. He has excellent technical and tactical foundations, as well as being able to create an atmosphere where each player gives their all.”
“Gattuso achieved strong results with a squad he did not put together and I hope he can soon get on to an important bench.”
