Coach’s medal stolen after AC Milan’s first title win since 2011

After AC Milan secured their first Serie A title in 11 years, head coach Stefano Pioli was left with pleading for the return of his winner’s medal.

This was after he claimed it was stolen amid the presentation ceremony.

The Rossoneri got their hands on the Scudetto for the first time since the 2010/2011 campaign courtesy of a 3-0 win at Sassuolo.

Olivier Giroud bagged a brace and Franck Kessie was also on the scoresheet.

Pioli was the figurehead behind AC Milan’s 19th top-flight title, with his former side Inter Milan settling for second in spite of their own 3-0 win over Sampdoria.

But the 56-year-old Pioli has now had a sour end to the day.

“They snatched my medal in the celebrations: if you can make an appeal I thank you, it is the only one I have,” said Pioli.

Ivan Perisic opened the scoring at San Siro for Inter Milan while Joaquin Correa struck twice more.

They helped wrap up a three-goal second-half blitz in eight minutes, but it was insufficient as they stayed two points behind Pioli’s side.

Matteo Politano, Piotr Zielinski and Diego Demme all scored in the first half as Napoli rounded off a season in which they finished third.

They were nine points ahead of fourth-placed Juventus with a 3-0 win at Spezia.
