CEO Ivan Gazidis’ time at AC Milan so far has been nothing if not turbulent, and a report lists the five main points of concern regarding his tenure.
Boban’s sacking as Chief Football Officer was made official over the weekend on the back of a revealing interview which he gave to La Gazzetta dello Sport, during which he criticised Gazidis for contacting Ralf Rangnick without consulting the management.
Meanwhile, multiple reports are claiming that the former Arsenal chief wants to oversee a management overhaul in the summer, with Rangnick set to take over as head coach and sporting director.
As Calciomercato.com notes, Gazidis has ended up in the crosshairs of an already irritated fanbase due to five main reasons.
Number one is his poor knowledge of the Italian language – with seemingly no attempts to learn – and lack of clarity on future plans. Two is that lack of new sponsors regardless of sporting difficulties, something he was meant to be able to deliver.
Third on the list is his inability to be open and honest in critical moments, while fourth are the differences and the little trust he has in the managerial staff he has chosen. Finally, in five is his poor communication with the press and fans.
