Ex-Chelsea coaches lined up as potential targets for Serie A side.
Two former Chelsea managers Roberto Di Matteo and Andre Villas-Boas have both emerged as contenders for the vacant managerial position at AC Milan, according to Sports Direct News.
Milan went down to an embarrassing 4-3 defeat to strugglers Sassuolo on Sunday and as a result promptly sacked coach Missimiliano Allegri on Monday morning and they are now looking to turn the side’s fortunes around with a fresh appointment.
Former players Filipo Inzaghi and Clarence Seedorf have both been linked with the vacant position, but Roberto Di Matteo has apparently been in the frame for some time and the club may now make an approach for him as he still remains out of work despite leading Chelsea to Champions League glory back in 2012.
Portuguese coach Villas-Boas is also out of work after being given his P45 by Tottenham Hotspur in December and is said to be looking for a way back into the game quickly.
AVB has previously worked for Milan’s cross city rivals Inter as an assistant manager to Jose Mourinho and is thought to be open to a return to Italy after an unhappy spell with both Spurs and Chelsea.
