I watched an interview with Billy tonight on the Milan Channel, given right before the derby; and he said he'll be leaving Milan after this season. He didn't say what he'll be doing, but did say he would like to come back to Milan as first team coach. He also said that Paolo will be playing next season and would retire after the end of next season.

Getafe offer job to AC Milan legend Costacurta
tribalfooball.com - June 05, 2008

Getafe have offered their vacant coaching job to AC Milan legend Billy Costacurta.

New Getafe sports chief Toni Munoz moved for Costacurta after consulting with Arrigo Sacchi about the ex-defender's suitability.

Costacurta spent last season on the coaching staff at Milan and sources say he is delighted with Getafe's interest.

Getafe president Angel Torres has handed Munoz a 15-day deadline to appoint a replacement for Michael Laudrup.

Costacurta: The Coach I'll be
Saturday 5 July, 2008
Billy Costacurta passed his coaching certificate this week and reveals what he learned from Carlo Ancelotti, Arrigo Sacchi and Euro 2008.
In order to hold a job as a Coach in Italy, everyone must pass a course at Coverciano and this week former Milan defender Costacurta was among those graduating along with Ciro Ferrara and Fabrizio Ravanelli.

“The difference between a Coach and a great Coach is empathy,” said the recently-retired star.

“The thing I have learned from this course is how to deal with the human resources in a team. I have always been very attentive to this aspect and started studying it by observing the tacticians at Milan.

“Ancelotti, for example, has an incredible capacity for dealing with the squad as a unit.”

Over the 20 years he spent at San Siro, Costacurta has had the opportunity to watch and learn from the greats.

“I remember the first speech Sacchi gave to the side when he took charge. ‘We shall aim to surprise,’ he said.”

He shadowed Ancelotti last season as an unofficial assistant manager – as former teammate Mauro Tassotti has that role – and is now ready to break out on his own.

“I am really excited at the idea of teaching football from on the training field. It’s the hardest thing for a Coach to ensure everyone is happy and involved in the project.

“There’s nothing to say I’ll get a job quickly, though. Many Presidents are frightened by the idea of handing the reins to a debutant.

“Besides, my wife will be working in theatre for the next few months and I don’t want our son Achille to grow up with a nanny, so if I do work, it’ll be close to home. After that period, I have no qualms about a club in any division or country.”

Costacurta has been keeping a close eye on Euro 2008 and the Spanish success story, as well as the impressive performances from Russia and Turkey.

“The message from that tournament is that if you have players with great technique, then use them. If you don’t have them, then make your squad move as fast as possible.”
way to go Billy, I'm sure we'll see him coaching his way up soon enough.

Billy could be the new coach of Pisa ...

not official ...

http://www.tuttomercatoweb.com/?action=read&id=112364

Pisa finished 6th in Serie B in 2007-2008 season

In that article, http://www.sportmediaset.it/mercato/...llenatore+pisa
they say he will bring his brother Ludovico to second him and another Milanista, Roberto Lorenzini will coach Pisa Primavera.

interestingly, Pisa play in nerazzurro ...

I'd like to see either one of Paolo or Billy coaching our side. Ideally, one as head and the other as assistant. But since Paolo has no plans of perusing a coaching career for now, it would be great to see Billy at the forefront once more.

Billy's got that 'ironic smile' which he has on his face when we suck. If I were a player, and he my manager, that would be pretty motivating

Article from gazzetta

He said Pisa was ideal for him, but he had to reject the offer cuz of his wife job (doesn't want to go far away from Milan).
He also says he won't coach this year.

He also said he didn't want their son to be raised by a nanny, that he wanted to be there for him.
