Mediaset have reported that Silvio Berlusconi has made his decision to replace Sinisa Mihajlovic next season with Cristian Brocchi on the Milan bench.
47-year-old Sinisa Mihajlovic is set to leave the San Siro after an abysmal season with the rossoneri. Milan currently sit 6th behind rivals Inter Milan. However, European football looks again a long shot for Mihajlovic's men.
Brocchi, currently the coach of AC Milan youth has been thrown into the mix to replace Mihajlovic. This decision however, was not made just by Berlusconi, he did consult Ariggo Sacchi about this also the report states.
Milan have now gone 4 games without a win which has now made them 14 points from third place Roma and out of European football. Sassuolo now behind Milan and climbing are benefiting from Milan's slump and with the possibility of overtaking them at seaons end.
Rollercoaster ride of late
The rossoneri faithful have been on a rollercoaster ride over the past three seasons with coaches, players and results. If the run in for Mihajlovic is imperative for his future, there is also the Coppa Italia final against league leaders Juventus which, a loss and/or victory would not be enough to salvage his future for another season.
AC Milan over the past three seasons have had to replaced coaches at an alarming rate and seeing a sacking is becoming the norm for the famous diavolo. Firstly with the sacking of Massimiliano Allegri, then soon after Filippo Inzaghi and, Clarence Seedorf and in only a couple of weeks Sinisa Mihajlovic looks to be next to face the wrath of success wanting Berlusconi. Milan haven't picked up silverware since their 2011 supercoppa Italiana triumph and haven't held the scudetto since the 2010-11 season and it is obvious that Berlusconi wants the glory days to return but he just can't get the right coaching formula to do so.
