AC Milan’s owners Elliott Management have ‘lost patience’ with the current situation at the club, according to a report.
The Rossoneri were looking to go one better than last season – in which they finished one point outside the top four – by qualifying for the Champions League this time around.
Elliott invested heavily in youth over the summer, spending around €69million (as per Di Marzio) to bring in six players, with the oldest being 25-year-old Ante Rebic.
However, Milan have started the season horrendously, losing four of their first six league games for only the third time in their history and the first time since 1938-39.
According to il Corriere della Sera – as cited by Calciomercato.com – this is why Elliott have already lost their patience with Milan and as such ‘drastic decisions cannot be ruled out’.
It is widely reported that the American fund want to increase the valuation of the club to around €1.5bn before selling to a new buyer, and missing out on the Champions League again would certainly not help their cause.
