Milan - AC Milan on Tuesday sacked coach Marco Giampaolo after just seven games in charge as the former European giants slipped to 13th place in Serie A, with former Inter Milan coach Stefano Pioli reportedly poised to take over.

Giampaolo replaced former Milan hero Gennaro Gattuso, who had lead the club to fifth last season, in the summer but after a run of four defeats that includes a 2-0 derby defeat to Inter the seven-time European champions are just three points above the relegation zone after seven league games.

The Gazzetta Dello Sport reported that Pioli was set to sign a two-year contract on Wednesday morning.

It is hoped he can bring stability to the club that has experienced its share of backroom drama after being sold twice in the last two years.
