Owners Elliott Management Corporation have one short-term objective in mind regarding AC Milan, according to a report.
Milan secured their first win of the season against a top six club on Sunday, beating Roma 2-0 at San Siro. Ante Rebic scored a scrappy opening goal, thundering home from inside the area after hitting the post initially.
The second goal came from the penalty spot as Theo Hernandez was chopped down chasing a loose ball; Hakan Calhanoglu stepping up to thump the spot kick in and kill the game off. The result moves Milan seventh in the table and level with Napoli once again, six points behind Roma in fifth.
According to Monday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via PianetaMilan), Elliott have one objective in mind between now and the end of the season: to qualify for the Europa League.
Getting knocked out of the Coppa Italia didn’t help that but a top six finish would do the job, and the American fund view it as a goal to be achieved at all costs both from an economic point of view, but above all for prestige.
