CM: How Milan’s management should look in 2024-25 amid Comolli and Kirovski rumours

By Oliver Fisher -

After witnessing AC Milan’s defeat against Roma at San Siro last night in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final meeting, Gerry Cardinale is immediately at work planning for the future.

According to, Cardinale got back on a plane and left Italy this morning but some important discretions have emerged regarding how Milan should look beyond the end of the current season.

It will not be very different from what we see in the present, despite the disappointment. Giorgio Furlani will remain the CEO of Milan meaning Damien Comolli, the current president of Toulouse (another team in the RedBird Capital orbit), will not be joining the club.

As with Furlani, the transfer team made up of Geoffrey Moncada and Antonio D’Ottavio will also be retained with 100% certainty in the roles of technical director and sporting director with decision-making power on the transfer market.

Together with them, Cardinale’s right-hand man Zlatan Ibrahimovic will supervise everything and will be confirmed in the role of Senior Advisor, meaning he will have plenty of say in the decisions made.

Finally, the appointment Jovan Kirovski – the former sporting director of the Los Angeles Galaxy in MLS and who was one of the architects of the then Zlatan’s move to American football – should happen.

He will be in charge of the U23 team project and will certainly also find himself collaborating with Moncada and D’Ottavio in managing the transfers of players between the senior squad and the B-team which should be born this summer.
