Former AC Milan defender Alessandro Costacurta has moved to reassure fans that technical director Paolo Maldini seems very calm at the moment.
There is currently some worry surrounding the current state of affairs at Milan because the 19th Scudetto triumph has been followed by four weeks of uncertainty, starting with the change in ownership from Elliott Management to RedBird Capital.
Directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will be officially out of contract tomorrow and there is no official renewal as of yet, while transfer targets such as Sven Botman and Renato Sanches are slipping away because of the delays despite months of groundwork having been done.
Costacurta spoke during an interview on Sky on Wednesday afternoon and he commented on the situation linked to the renewals of Maldini and Massara, which are yet to be unblocked, revealing that the former is calm.
“I think there is a change of ownership which is the central aspect. It seems to me that they are still carrying on the discussions started in the last few times,” he said (via MilanNews).
“Of course maybe this delay doesn’t make a good impression, but I understand that with the change of ownership you have to understand who has to sign and who has to shut up. Paolo always answers me on WhatsApp and he seemed very serene.”
