Exclusive – AC Milan to appoint Mazzarri if Montella is sacked

Given the public disagreement between AC Milan’s Mirabelli and their coach Montella, it is hardly a bold statement to claim that the former Fiorentina coach’s days with the Rossoneri are numbered. In a such an event many names have been put forward to replace Montella such as Tuchel, Hiddink and Gattuso to Carlo Ancelotti.

However, Calciomercato.com can reveal that the name that is most likely to replace Montella is former Inter and Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri. The main reason for this is that Mazzarri is known for playing with a 3-man defence and produced great results with Napoli and Milan’s squad is adapted to play Mazzarri’s brand of efficient football.

Also, his rumored relationship with Fassone and Mirabelli, whom he knows well from their time at Inter, is far from strained. In fact calciomercato.com can reveal that it is entirely the opposite.
