AC Milan’s chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, has reaffirmed the commitment of the club’s management and ownership to the AC Milan Women’s team.
This comes courtesy of ANSA, who stated that the Rossoneri chief made the declaration during a video message that was sent to the players and the staff on April 9th.
“The football industry has been hit hard and will change a lot in the upcoming months,” Gazidis said. “I hear the questions about the future of women’s football but our company’s structure is solid, determined and passionate. We have long-term plans and ambitions for this team,” added Milan’s managing director.
“I want you all to focus on your families and your health without the stress of imagining how the future of the AC Milan Women can be impacted by this emergency,” Gazidis concluded.
This is good news for the AC Milan Women, and their fans. There have been a lot of questions regarding Milan’s commitment to the women’s team. Carolina Morace, the Rossonere’s former coach, cited this as one of the reasons why she left the team.
Gazidis’ words, however, might just quell those murmuring voices.
Currently, Serie A Femminile, like most other leagues, is suspended due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The full impact of the crisis on the league has yet to be fully determined.
The AC Milan Women currently sit second on the table. They are on level points with Fiorentina. It has yet to be determined how the current Serie A season will finish, or if the league will even resume play at all.
