AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli has committed his future to the club by signing a new deal, as confirmed by the club.
With his previous deal expiring next summer, Pioli has put pen to paper on a two-year extension until 2025.
Pioli has helped Rossoneri return to their best, winning the Serie A title last season to end their decade-long trophy drought.
Milan have also qualified for the Champions League in consecutive seasons under Pioli.
Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Pioli will earn up to €4 million per season in his new contract, and a Scudetto bonus has also been included.
The Italian manager has offered his thoughts on the new deal, stating that the contract extension provides him with extra motivation.
Pioli said (h/t Football Italia): “Signing a renewal with Milan is always very exciting – it’s what I wanted and wished for. I thank the owners for this opportunity and the technical area also for the timing in which this contract was done.
“I am very happy – if possible, signing this gives me even more energy to continue what we are doing.”
The Rossoneri will face RB Salzburg at San Siro in their final game of the Champions League group stage on Wednesday.
The Italians need a win or draw to book their place in the round of 16.
