AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli has his Serie A winner’s medal stolen by an unknown person.
Pioli led Milan to their first Serie A title in eleven years and jubilation was rife throughout the squad, but the tactician later revealed he was unable to find his medal with the coach now asking for it back.
Wonderful. Milan coach Stefano Pioli says his Serie A medal was stolen during the title celebrations!
He appealed: “Please bring him back. It’s the only one I have.” https://t.co/09n5iBloGc

“Someone stole the winner’s medal, someone stripped it from my neck. If I could appeal, I would be grateful, it is the only one I have,” according to La Repubblica.
The tactic likely gets his wish with the First Division in a later tweet that they will award him another medal tomorrow (on Monday): “Don’t worry Mr. Pioli, we’ll give you the medal again tomorrow.”
