CorSera: Elliott want unity despite crisis at Milan; Maldini’s position the most delicate

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in crisis after Sunday’s hammering against Atalanta, a report claims, but there will be no sackings or resignations until at least the end of the season.

The Rossoneri were pummelled 5-0 in Bergamo over the weekend, a result which has seemingly plunged the club into turmoil after weeks of improved performances.

However, il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews.it) are reporting that the ‘unity of crisis’ has brought everyone together with the goal of remedying the appalling result on Sunday and working to put things right.

The paper claims that there will be no resignations, despite suggestions that Boban’s words after the game on the upcoming market infuriated Elliott.

Everyone will remain in their current role at least until the end of the season, with Ivan Gazidis at the top of the decision-making pyramid as CEO and Maldini, Boban and Massara still responsible for the technical area.

This would the decision taken by owners Elliott Management who are convinced that this is no time for revolutions, with the only objective being to try and rescue the season with plenty of games left in the calendar to do so.

The outlet also adds though that Maldini’s position remains the most delicate, as the technical director is the most responsible for the summer mercato which has disappointed until now.

Things would also look slightly easier with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the squad, the report concludes.
