Giampaolo has signed a two-year deal with the club which will keep him until the summer of 2021 with an option to extend the contract to June 2022. The 51-year-old left his role at Sampdoria on Saturday paving way for him to take charge of the Rossoneri. He will take over from former boss Gennaro Gattuso who departed last month.
Giampaolo spent three seasons in charge of Sampdoria, guiding them to 11th, 10th and ninth-place finishes in Serie A. Prior to that he was in charge of Empoli.
