As pointed out by the Italian newspaper Il Corriere dello Sport, Stefano Pioli is now experiencing a positive second half of the season in the Serie A league.
The Rossoneri club performance is overshadowed, however, by Inter's excellent journey so far in the league.
It should be worth mentioning, though, that Milan has earned 52 points points after 24 matches this season. In the era of three points for a win, the Rossoneri club had only done better under former Italian coaches Fabio Capello (1995-1996 season) and Carlo Ancelotti (2003-2004).
Pioli's Milan, traveling at an average of 2.55 points per game, had performed similarly well in the 2020-2021 season and the following one, 2021-2022, when they won the Scudetto in May.
Milan's start to 2024 has been practically perfect, with five wins and one draw (the one at 'San Siro' against Bologna conceded in the 92nd minute on a penalty kick...) in the last six matches. If you expand the scope to the last nine league matches, the count rises to seven wins and two draws, with 23 points in the bag.
According to the same newspaper 'CorSport', Stefano Pioli's position at Milan seems to be more in question for a large part of the fan base than within the management. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Giorgio Furlani and Paolo Scaroni, however, have publicly expressed their trust, faith and support for Pioli and the work he does at Milanello with the players.
Therefore, Pioli still has a chance to be confirmed (as we have revealed to you yesterday). But the end of the season will have an impact. With a potential triumph in the Europa League, it would be difficult to part ways, but the club still wants to wait for the developments of the current season before making a final decision.
