Milan make deal with Rangnick

The Italian giants will get Ralf Rangnick as a head coach after lengthy negotiations.

Rumors that Rangnick will lead Milan did not stop for the past six months. Rangnick was constantly sent to the city of the same name due to the club’s constant failure in the domestic arena. After Stefano Pioli’s arrival to the team, Rossoneri have slightly improved their tournament standings and occupy seventh place. But it is not enough for a great club, which Milan were at the start of 2000’s.

It is expected that by the end of the season in Italy, which resumed two days ago and will end at the beginning of August, Ralf will lead the team as a head coach and will also get the post of the director of sports. Besides, Rangnick’s candidacy is priority for the club executive Ivan Gazidis. It is on this ground Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban had an argument with Gazidis back in the day. The former wanted the return of Massimiliano Allegri and Ivan insisted on Rangnick. Gazidis offers him a contract for three years with the option of extension, as well as the salary of five million euros annually.

Besides, there was information in May about who will become an assistant of the German specialist. It was said back then that the right hand man of Rangnick at Milan will be Andriy Shevchenko’s assistant in the national team of Ukraine Mauro Tassotti – such a man beside the pedantic and meticulous German will do no harm.

The advantages of Rangnik include the fact that he showed by his own example how to build a team with minimal investment and a competent approach. Work at Leipzig, with which he managed to be promoted to Bundesliga for the first time in their short history and then returned and brought the team bronze medals of the championship is on his shoulders.

For the past decade, Rangnick has never been fired. He left Schalke for health reasons and the decision to leave Leipzig was made by him not the management. He was very appreciated at Red Bull for reverent approach and even appointed him sports and football development manager. Ha remained an advisor at Leipzig, but left because of Milan’s offer. If the German is allowed to work properly and not met with roadblocks, we have all the chance to see Milan’s resurrection on the European arena.
