While directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara seem increasingly likely to renew with AC Milan, there continues to be some mystery surrounding CEO Ivan Gazidis.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) writes about the future of Gazidis in relation to what will happen within the Rossoneri’s Board of Directors, once the definitive closing of the RedBird Capital takeover happens in September.
President Paolo Scaroni made some interesting comments during an interview with GR Parliament: “Gerry Cardinale proposed that I remain President. For now I have replied that I want to understand the evolution of the situation. But I would be happy to continue”. On Gazidis, he added: “We are sure to count on him until his contract expires, until November.”
The paper claims that Gazidis ‘has a rather cold relationship with Paolo Maldini’ – Milan’s technical director – and it cannot be ruled out that he decides to leave and try something new once his contract runs out.
However, there will be a sign of continuity on the board as Elliott Management will remain with two directors out of the nine that make it up.
