CEO Ivan Gazidis sends message to all staff at AC Milan after returning ‘home’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis announced his return to work via a message sent out to all members of staff at the club, a report claims.

Gazidis had temporarily moved to the USA, where he was being treated after being diagnosed with throat cancer, but despite being halfway across the world he continued to express his support and closeness to the club.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Gazidis returned to Milan today after a period spent in the US where he was undergoing treatment. He has always sent messages to the management and to other staff, and he wanted to thank and reassure everyone with a letter today.

“Dear Colleagues,

“As some of you may know, I have just returned to Milan to continue my journey towards healing. I want to tell you that it is a real pleasure and a relief to finally return to the city that is truly my home, although the incredible support and affection received in recent weeks has never made me feel far away.

“I am also happy to have managed to respect my professional duties during this period of very delicate and demanding treatments and care, above all thanks to your commitment and contribution. it filled us with pride to see the continued progress made, on and off the pitch.

“Now I will entrust my convalescence to the expert hands of the incredible IEO team here in Milan. Although there will still be a long way to go to get to full recovery, I remain absolutely confident, and I am convinced that we will soon be able to meet again in person. In the meantime, we are identifying a date in the coming weeks to virtually meet again in a Town Hall, to be able to greet you all and talk to each other directly, after this period of distance, even if only physically.

“Sempre Forza Milan, Ivan.”

There will be no chance to rest for the former Arsenal chief though as he several things on his agenda such as the stadium project that must be further discussed with the City Council, then there is the renewals of the contracts expiring and also the January market.

    I do not like you at all at AC Milan and in calcio in general but as a man battling through cancer you have my love and support, all the best with your recovery.

      Well had the club not taken a proactive approach in regard of bringing down the expenditures we would have been in a heap of trouble and the pandemic on top of that would have worsened it even more and maybe making the card house crumple so whether people like him as a person or not we should all appreciate the work he and the rest of the management has done in recent years. Even with low expenditure and sliming down our wages we have been doing better than we have done in the last decade so obviously they must be doing things right.

        Nope, not a fan. Gazidis without Maldini would have failed but not ths other way around. As I said, I wish him a speedy recovery but I do not like his body of work throughout his career.

        1. Martin Bernhard says:

          i get you wished him a speedy recovery so it wasnt to take a jibe at that but in regard of economy its a combination of the management and you do realize that our losses under the pandemic are far better than for example juventus and inter and that we actually made our losses in the last year drop to half of the previous one and gazzidis work is part of that whether you agree with that or not.
