Stefano Pioli was appointed as Milan's new manager, replacing Marco Giampaolo.

Giampaolo lasted just 7 matches, and a club record of 111 days.

“A new Coach arrives, certainly one with different ideas and concepts of football. We have to build our identity, there are games to play and that means we have only limited time to work. We’ve got to make the most of every instant we have on that training field, get to know each other and become a team as quickly as possible," said Pioli.
