AC Milan finally confirmed a new name in the composition of the Italian Serie A squad next season. The name of Marco Giampaolo was chosen as a replacement for Gennaro Gattuso, who decided to resign because he thought he failed in the mission to bring Milan to the Champions League stage.
Through the official website page, Milan released a statement that Giampaolo got a long-term contract if he could contribute to the team. The initial contract is actually two seasons with the option of contract extension if Milan can compete in the top four of the Italian Serie A.
Giampaolo, who decided to leave Sampdoria with the remaining one new season contract, will be officially effective as the allenatore Rossoneri starting on July 1, 2019. Investigate, Giampaolo will receive a salary of 2 million euros per season.
Giampaolo’s cool hands with Sampdoria were quite impressive with 49 wins, 26 draws and 48 defeats in 123 matches over three seasons. Giampaolo’s figure can be regarded as an experienced figure in Serie A.
Giampaolo has dealt with many Italian clubs, say there are Cagliari, Catania, Brescia and Empoli. During his tenure as a coach, Giampaolo was known as a figure who likes the style of 4-3-1-2 formation which emphasizes the game of ball position.
Giampaolo is now listed as the 60th coach who accompanied AC Milan and was also listed as coach of eight Milan after Massimiliano Allegri left in 2014. Throughout the eight seasons, Milan had been drafted by Gattuso, Vincenzo Montella, Christian Brocchi, Sinisa Mihajlovic, Filippo Inzaghi, Clarence Seedorf, and Mauro Tassotti.
Now Milan hope for the figure of Giampaolo in order to bring them back to the peak of their glory both on local and long distance performances. The most important and perhaps very difficult task is to help Milan compete in the hunt for the Italian Serie A title next season and certainly play in the Champions League.
2018-2019 season is an experience that can be taken by Giampaolo. Indeed, Milan under the tutelage of Gattuso was good enough, but it was only a factor of luck that could not lift them out of the final ranked fifth in Serie A.
