AC Milan fitness coach close to dismissal, Pioli also has doubts

The Rossoneri have been winless in Serie A for over a month and Pioli has two games to save his job

AC Milan’s management has been very concerned about further injuries to important players since the beginning of the season. Rafael Leao and Davide Calabria are the latest two players to be admitted to hospital since the start of this campaign. The club’s directors are not at all happy with what is happening and have already focused on fitness trainer Matteo Osti. Coach Stefano Pioli is also currently facing criticism due to the club’s unconvincing recent results.

The Rossoneri have not won a Serie A match for over a month, and a Champions League victory over PSG has been their only joy since the October break. In addition, Milan players have already suffered 24 injuries this season and the club’s directors will soon meet with Pioli and his team to discuss these issues. The initiator of this meeting is general director Giorgio Furlani and although the coach does not want to change the composition of the staff, the club may decide to remove Matteo Osti, who is the current fitness coach of the Rossoneri.

Osti was named Serie A’s best fitness coach in the 2021-2022 season as Milan won the Scudetto. However, the Rossoneri have suffered too many injuries this season and the club is considering taking immediate action.

At the same time, Pioli’s job is not in danger yet, but according to Tutosport, Milan’s directors will consider the position of coach if the Rossoneri fail to win against Fiorentina and Borussia (Dortmund) after the international break. Failure to qualify for the round of 16 of the Champions League could prove costly for the Parma-born coach, whose contract at San Siro expires in June 2025.
