It's not a threat. It's an obvious statement of fact. The whole SOC thing is going to pretty much drop off a cliff once Pioli is fired. But that hasn't happened yet, so why stop?
I actually think it's more important than ever to send a message that NOTHING has changed. Otherwise it just looks like we're cool now, and that keeping Pioli is somehow understandable to us given all he's been through.
