Marco Giampaolo is the latest in a string of hopeful appointments by AC Milan in their bid to bring the glory days back to the red side of San Siro, and his tenure begins away to Udinese.
The Rossoneri have not finished in the top four since 2012-13 and have gone through numerous coaches in recent years, with Clarence Seedorf, Filippo Inzaghi, Sinisa Mihajlovic, Cristian Brocchi, Vincenzo Montella and Gennaro Gattuso all failing.
Although Krzysztof Piatek and Lucas Paqueta showed promise after their January arrivals last term, Milan have only added Theo Hernandez and Rade Krunic to their squad this close season.
Few will expect a massive improvement considering the limited investment, though a relatively easy-going opening to the season – including games against promoted Brescia and Hellas Verona – might help give them the momentum they need to build up some positivity.
