They hired the former Milan midfielder in the summer of 2021. He led them to the long-awaited promotion on his first attempt, winning the playoffs after finishing fourth.

After all, their XI is almost completely new and unrelated to the director. They have the potential to do better, but they have to choose carefully, as the team is only built for 3-5-2 or something similar.
