AC Milan sack Giampaolo after just seven games
Marco Giampaolo has been sacked as head coach of AC Milan after just seven games in charge.
A club statement read: "AC Milan announces it has relieved Mr. Marco Giampaolo from his position as coach of the First Team. The Club is grateful to Marco for the work carried out and wishes him all the best to come in his professional career."
The news comes after AC Milan are struggling in the Serie A, and it means the Milan team continue their bad run with managers as Giampaolo joins Gennaro Gattuso and Vincenzo Montella in AC Milan's recent manager sackings.
Giampaolo, 52, replaced Gennaro Gattuso during the summer, but the former European giants are 13th in Serie A -- three points above the relegation zone -- after four defeats in seven games.
Former Fiorentina and Inter Milan coach Stefano Pioli is reported to be set to take over the seven-time European champions who won the last of their 18 Italian league titles in 2011.
