Stefano Pioli and Luciano Spalletti are reportedly the favourites to replace Marco Giampaolo at AC Milan.

Marco Giampaolo's time at AC Milan could already be over and the Serie A giants are considering replacements.

Milan overcame Genoa for their third win in seven league games this season, but they are still struggling in 13th in the table.

Giampaolo's stint at the helm at San Siro may be over already after just over three months in charge.
