When Stefano Pioli was announced as the man to replace Marco Giampaolo as AC Milan manager, there was the potential for fury to break loose among the fanbase.
This was confirmed when Giampaolo’s sacking was announced, with Pioli’s imminent appointment already being common knowledge, as it was officially revealed less than 24 hours later.
However, it seems as though things could be about to settle down a little bit from within the club’s fanbase regarding the new man in charge:
Stefano Pioli holds his first training session as our new coach

With photos of the Italian taking training being shown, it perhaps gives a sense of reality to the fact that he is actually working for Milan now.
With this in mind, some fans have shown that they will back Pioli, even if they don’t have much faith in him, hoping he will be able to prove them wrong.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the pictures, including posts from supportive Milan fans, can be seen below:

Let’s get behind the man right now. He’s our coach already and we haven’t even watched his first game. #ForzaMilan
