AC Milan have officially responded to rumours that Ralf Rangnick is set to arrive as the club’s new manager by labelling them as unfounded.
We reported via our correspondent Vito Angele last month that Rangnick will indeed agree a role as manager – that is the double responsibility of head coach and the man in charge of the transfer market.
Rangnick will also cover the role of technical director, while Maldini himself has been offered a new position, that of Club Ambassador, to which he will say no.
Now, ANSA (via TMW) are reporting that Milan have responded to the speculation with the following: “No technical decision has been taken or will be taken by Milan before the end of the season, and once again the maximum support and confidence of the leadership in Pioli and the team is confirmed.”
The same source points out that within the club it caused astonishment not only because of the content of the article but also the timing, given it is on the eve of a crucial match like the one against Juventus.
In addition, the club sources stress that whatever conversation Gazidis may have had with the management in recent days has always been oriented to strengthen the club’s structure and its future.
