Ibrahimovic is strongly advocating for the appointment of van Bommel as Milan’s head coach. Throughout this season, AC Milan has entertained the possibility of parting ways with Stefano Pioli, particularly following defeats to AS Roma and Inter. While Pioli has narrowly avoided dismissal on multiple occasions, recent losses have prompted management to pursue a change in leadership for the future.

Footmercato reports that Pioli’s departure is all but confirmed at the end of the season, and efforts are underway to identify potential successors. Among the candidates, Mark van Bommel stands out for Ibrahimovic, who has taken initial steps to support his candidacy. Van Bommel, known for his coaching stints at PSV Eindhoven, VfL Wolfsburg, and notably Royal Antwerp, where he secured a treble last season, has caught Ibrahimovic’s attention.

It’s reported that Ibrahimovic has urged other club executives to consider van Bommel for the position, citing their existing relationship as a significant factor in his endorsement. However, thorough evaluation is necessary before van Bommel can be deemed the preferred choice.
