CM: Faivre’s interview causes embarrassment – confused Milan have paused to reflect

By Oliver Fisher -

The reaction of the Milan management to Romain Faivre’s recent interview was far from a positive one, according to a report.

Faivre has caused a stir by giving an interview to La Gazzetta dello Sport earlier in the week revealed that he is charmed by Paolo Maldini’s phone call and dropped a strong hint that he is gearing up for the move, even claiming he has spoken to former Monaco team-mate Fode Ballo-Toure about the club.

Brest On Air then reported that the 23-year-old may be in more hot water with his club just as he was over the summer as he spoke to the Italian newspaper without asking for permission from Brest first.

According to, Faivre’s interview created a bit of embarrassment at both Brest and the Rossoneri because he chose to speak as if the deal were done and that he will be flying to Italy as soon as the window reopens.

Brest were annoyed by his mutiny in the last few days of the summer window and decided to suspend the negotiation. After a few months, Massara’s interest in Faivre has not waned but other profiles are also evaluated and Milan did not particularly like the player’s strategy, taking a pause for reflection.

  1. Milan doesn’t need another lefty but a right midfield as Saelemaekers and Castillejo are more of a second choice. Rebic, Leao and Maldini are allready on Faivre’s spot

  2. This guy seems to be either the next Calhanoglu (lots of drama, always looking for a better club) or the next Tonali (a guy who really wants to play for Milan)…

    1. Pls don’t make this mistake “BETTER” Inter isn’t better than AC MILAN in any way. Pls be mindful. I think it’s just too much anxiety for him. He has to take it easy as this would only mar Milan’s chances of getting him except we plead to the Brest’s owner.

    2. He clearly wants to Come to Milan. Not many players want to these days. Plus this drama will only make Brest want to sell him, even at a lower price, it works perfectly for us

    1. Yeah, indeed.. But it’s obvious that he is really the right profile for us currently as he can easily be the decent option at AM/RW position…

  3. Milan caused this mess. Instead of closing deals, we keep bargaining and bargaining.This is why we lost out on Kaio Jorge and have failed to renew our best players…the Management are good at scouting but bad at closing deals. Faivre looks like he really want to Move to Milan…We need a RW badly and thi should have been finished in the summer,If u don’t bring him, bring Berardi them..RW needs to be addressed ASAP. There is no time to pause for thought
