Repubblica: Maldini and Massara remain the future of Milan – they will soon extend

By Oliver Fisher -

Amid the speculation that AC Milan will soon be bought by either Investcorp or RedBird, there have also been stories about the future of the current management.

La Repubblica (via MilanNews) writes how the fact Milan are competing for the Scudetto is of course down to the hard work of Stefano Pioli, his staff and the entire squad, but also thanks to technical director Paolo Maldini and sporting director Frederic Massara.

In recent weeks, there has been a lot of talk about the sale of the club and the transfer market, but given the duo are currently on contracts set to expire on June 30th, some movement is needed on that front too.

The paper adds that Maldini has in fact reached an agreement with CEO Ivan Gazids and the Elliott fund – with Gordon Singer having attended the match against Atalanta at San Siro – for the renewal of his contract.

His right-hand man Massara will also remain at Milan as both will undoubtedly get a more than deserved extension for their work in helping bring Milan back to competing for titles.

  1. great work by maldini and Massara they literally save our club from idiot american owners ,
    they did fantastic job even with all obstacles those idiot who don’t understand a thing about football pot in front of them ,
    maldini is legend as footballer and as technical director

    1. Can you explain why Elliot are idiots? You made that claim several times with nothing to substantiate it. Conversely, what would not make them idiots? Spending beyond the club’s means? Very curious as to hear your logic.

      1. when you have injury crisis like we had in december and january and you as owner don’t make found available for new defender that’s id iot way to think because if ma boy kalulu didn’t shows his more then right defender we would be in big trouble and we would lose about 60 to 100 million because we wouldn’t make the top 4
        when you put a cap on salary and allow important players to leave for free every year because you refuse to pay them what the market say they deserve then that’s idiot way of thinking i’m not gonna blame players that leave for better salary because for them its a jobs i blame the fking owner for that inter had money problem and they paid for his salary and his they’re best player
        psg didn’t really need a goalkeeper and paid for that kid salary , because worst passable scenario they could resell them and got profit out of them
        i want to see owner like silvio berlusconi era
        that’s why for me Silvio Berlusconi is the third most important person in ac Milan history after our 2 captain Paolo Maldini and Franco Baressi
        because having owner with brain and willing to invest is really important ,

        1. I understand your point but I would argue that the owners have been proven right in being able to achieve sporting competitiveness (hopefully success after this weekend) while maintaining a budget and putting good people into important roles such as Madlini and Massara. I know as fans we always want our club to spend to buy the best players but there are realities in the world that we need to understand and accept. No one can spend money that they do not have and avoid having to eventually pay for it. Inter, PSG, etc all had to lose important players (Lukaku, Mbappe) too. I really don’t see how Elliot can be blamed for much over the course of their stewardship.

    2. Without the idiot owners, Maldini and Massara won’t have a job and won’t be able to do their job which is to purchase and sell players…under limits of course (set by the idiot owners who wanted ummm a viable company)

  2. Your third most important person in the history of Milan , Silvio, is all the one responsible for reducing Milan to this slumber mode by selling Milan to some dodgy Chinese …
