AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella is walking on this ice after having lost five of the opening 11 games in Serie A this season.
AC Milan executives expected a better start to the season and the Italian tactician is now on the brink due to the team’s negative results.
Today’s edition of Tuttosport claims the rossoneri executives have issued an ultimatum to their manager.
The Italian, in fact, is expected to face sack if he fails to win the next two away games against AEK Athens and Sassuolo.
Several reports in Italy claim AC Milan have already prepared a three-man shortlist to replace Montella with Walter Mazzarri, Paulo Sousa and Gennaro Gattuso featuring in the list.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via VNews) Gattuso, a former rossoneri midfielder currently in charge of the Primavera team is the leading candidate to take over the senior team if Montella faces sack.
