Ralf Rangnick will become AC Milan coach and technical director. Club legend Paolo Maldini expected to turn down chance to become ambassador.
AC Milan will appoint Ralf Rangnick as their new head coach and technical director at the end of the Serie A season, according to Sky in Italy.
The 62-year-old will replace Stefano Pioli as head coach and club legend Paolo Maldini as technical director.
Rangnick’s imminent arrival means Pioli will leave Milan following their final Serie A fixture of the season. That’s a game at home to Cagliari on August 2.
The 54-year-old Italian became rossoneri boss in October. He has guided Milan to seventh in Serie A, two points behind sixth-placed Napoli.
As well as leaving his role as technical director, Maldini is also expected to turn down the offer to become a Milan club ambassador.
