Gazidis and Scaroni react to sealing UCL return: “It’s just the beginning of our ambitious path”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has expressed his delight after the Rossoneri secured their return to the Champions League with last night’s win over Atalanta.

Sunday night was a truly unforgettable evening because after seven very long years, Milan secured their return to the Champions League. Not only that, but they did it by beating Atalanta away, a feat that very few teams have managed in recent years and against a side that the Rossoneri have struggled with in recent fixtures.

What mattered was only the result and in the end a victory came thanks to two penalties scored by ‘the President’ Franck Kessie – very fitting for such a leader of the team. In doing so, Milan won their 16th away game of the season, a record in the Italian top flight.

Milan’s Twitter profile published the following statement from Paolo Scaroni after the Rossoneri’s Champions League qualification: “With great happiness we conclude an exciting season with the entry of our teams into the Champions League. A great result, the result of the joint work of everything the club, together with the players who honor our coat of arms.”

CEO Ivan Gazidis also commented on the achievement: “We’re happy to have achieved the Club’s first goal. It’s just the beginning of our ambitious path, now we should keep on working together with determination. The amazing Rossoneri fans never stopped supporting us, our duty is to make them proud.”
