At the end of the clash between Monza and AlbinoLeffe, Silvio Berlusconi spoke to Telelombardia (via MilanNews.it) about AC Milan and the comments on the current CEO Ivan Gazidis.
During the presentation of Stefano Pioli on Wednesday morning, Gazidis stated that Elliott Management saved the Rossoneri from bankruptcy, after taking over from Yonghong Li last summer. Berlusconi didn’t exactly appreciate the comments.
“If Milan risked going to Serie D? Who said that? Gazidis? These are comments that you shouldn’t say, unless you go to the toilet, close the door and then say it. How Milan can become strong again? Simple, just give it back to Silvio Berlusconi,” he began.
The 83-year-old was also asked about the San Siro side’s new manager Pioli, who replaced Marco Giampaolo after a very poor start to the season. However, Berlusconi didn’t have much to say about the two.
“I don’t know Pioli and I can’t express any opinion. I don’t know Marco Giampaolo personally either, I only want to talk about things that I know thoroughly,” he continued.
Finally, he gave his opinion on San Siro, which could be knocked down if Inter and Milan’s plan to build a new stadium goes through. Jokingly, he suggested that the council should give it to Monza instead.
“New stadium? They are beautiful projects. We are tied to the San Siro because we won everything there, so I hope they will find a solution that doesn’t include knocking it down. I suggest that they give it to Monza instead,” he concluded.
