Gerry Cardinale, who officially was announced as the new owner of AC Milan back in September, has sent a Christmas message to the employees of the club. Among other things, he praised them for their important work.
2022 has been a successful year for AC Milan, winning the Scudetto for the first time in over ten years and advancing to the knockout stages of the Champions League. It bodes well for the future and Cardinale, with his Redbird Capital, invested at the right time.
As the holidays are set to begin, Cardinale decided to send a message to the employees of the club, as cited by Gazzetta Dello Sport. He stated that he will do everything in his power to make use of the potential Milan has.
“Dear friends, a special year is coming to a close, which marked our first steps in the great history of Milan, together with the great emotion of winning the Scudetto. A story to which each of you continues to contribute with great involvement and which I, in turn, feel committed to nurturing and making use of RedBird’s full capabilities.
“The excellent sporting results and the further steps forward in the solidity and sustainability of the Club’s management have shown us, once again, how far ‘teamwork’ can take us all together, to ‘throw our hearts over the obstacle’
“Thanks to the guidance of President Scaroni, the new CEO Giorgio Furlani, Paolo Maldini and all the management, combined with your constant commitment and dedication, our Club will continue on this trajectory to return to the top of European football.
“This is my wish for the new year to come, while I wish you serenity and all the best possible for the upcoming holidays to all of you, your families and the large, warm, incredible community of Milanisti, in Italy and around the world. Forza Milan, sempre! Gerry Cardinale.”
The league will resume on January 4 and with eight points separating Milan and Napoli, the Rossoneri have a lot of catching up to do. A strong second half of the season is thus needed, but it won’t be easy.
