AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli has had his Serie A winner’s medal stolen by an unknown person.
Pioli led Milan to their first-ever Scudetto in eleven years and the jubilation was all over the team but the tactician later revealed that he couldn’t find his medal with the coach now making an appeal to have it returned.

“Someone has stolen the winner’s medal, somebody stripped it from my neck. If I could make an appeal, I’d be grateful, it’s the only one I have,” he said, according to La Repubblica.
The tactician is likely to be granted his wish with Serie A later tweeting that they will hand him another medal tomorrow (on Monday): “Don’t worry Mr Pioli, we’ll give you the medal again tomorrow.”
