CorSport: Kirovski looking abroad for Milan’s next talented youngsters

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan are one of the most international teams in Serie A right now and that could continue in the future with Jovan Kirovski reportedly looking abroad for the next crop of talented youngsters. 

As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via Milan News), Kirovski, who is essentially the sporting director for the Milan U23 project, will have more of a focus on foreign talent rather than Italians going forward.

Kirovski only recently began officially working in this role but realistically he has been making progress for weeks, with only the formalities missing around what his role would actually be called.

He is tasked with helping to build a squad that can be successful in Serie C and help to produce players that can help the first team, be that through bringing them in from the Primavera team or signing them.

The expectation is that, whilst there will of course be plenty of Italian players in the team and signing for the team, Kirovski will not shy away from travelling around Europe and the United States of America to add to the talent pool at the club.

Italy’s Euro 2024 squad featured no AC Milan players, a testament to how international the team has become in recent seasons.

  1. Ah good, scouting in USA. Would be a shame to miss the next Freddy Adu or Sergino Dest. Cant’ wait for the fourth jersey with stars and stripes.

  2. I think RedBird will exploit the loop hole Milan Futuro offers. They’re buying Italians in their prime for Serie C club and will register them also for first team to comply with UEFA rules. Ibra said there will be a lot of moving players between first team and Milan Futuro.

    So don’t expect the likes of Buongiorno or Scalvini in red and black any time soon. There’s more chance we’ll watch them play for the club across the road.

    1. It’s like you don’t understand any aspect of business. The whole point of the Futuro project (and all youth projects) is to bring through players from that team into the first team and thus decrease the need for transfers. So no, the likes of Buongiorno or Scalvini may not play for Milan, but their successors will.

      1. Omg really?🤦

        Before you go and talk about who’s clueless about business try to consider EVERY aspect of it.

        Yes, Milan Futuro is considered to bridge the gap between Primavera and first team and thus make this transit easier for the youngsters. But that’s just ONE aspect. There are many more to take into consideration. And one of it it’s this loop hole I am talking about.

        1. No, that IS the main aspect. They haven’t set aside millions for this project nor have they been signing up youngsters over the last few years just to fill quotas for Europe, nor is a reduced squad size enough of a deterrent to make clubs comply with those quotas.

          1. What are you babbling about? They’ve signed Mattia Sandri a 23 year old midfielder, Mbarick Fall a 27 year old striker is on the way, 24-year-old Andrea Adorante is discussed. These are the players to fill the quotas. You want to have teenagers play against grown ups in third divison? Serie C is a butcher shop compared to Serie A. And these prime aged palyers can be considered for UEFA list. Those under 22 do not take the spot. Like I said, there are MANY aspects to Milan Futuro and what can be exploited with it.

    1. Yep. This is what I feared when this complete nobody was appointed, just because he’s Ibrahmovic’s mate. He has zero credentials for the role. The role should have gone to an Italian with the remit of looking in Italy.
