As has become clear, there are different visions and strategies within the AC Milan management. Paolo Maldini and Zvone Boban on one side, Ivan Gazidis on the other. For the time being, tension is holding the club back. 

The two former Rossoneri players – currently head of the technical area – want to understand what the CEO thinks of them and therefore, in the next few days, there will be a confrontation between the two sides.
