CEO Ivan Gazidis has told Sky Italia that he feels part of the fabric of the city of Milan, and that he wants to be part of AC Milan’s resurgence.
It took some time, but it seems Milan are finally on the right path for the future. Many were against the principles of the project pitched by Gazidis and owners Elliott Management, but it has worked out well with the team currently top of the table in Serie A.
Initially, the Rossoneri only intended to bring in young players, keen on building a Leipzig-esque team. However, they missed one important factor and that was experience, which Simon Kjaer and Zlatan Ibrahimovic brought to the team in January 2020, and this has been added to.
Gazidis believe that Milan are on the right track for a comeback, but are at the beginning of the path. A short clip from the full interview with Sky – which will be aired later tonight – has been shown, with the comments transcribed by MilanNews and translated below.
“I really feel Milanese. I arrived at Milan because I have a dream. I want to be part of the comeback of this top club,” he said.
“I want a modern and progressive Milan, we are at the beginning of the path. Ibrahimovic is the exception to all rules, always. Stefano Pioli is an intelligent and profound man. Team unity is essential. I feel like a Milan fan.”
