MN: Just what Milan needed – Maldini and Gazidis put aside differences to form cohesive unit

By Oliver Fisher -

The embrace after the very important victory in Rome is yet another sign of how close-knit the management are, according to a report.

As MilanNews writes, there was warm hug between Paolo Maldini, Frederic Massara and Ivan Gazidis after the game, the trio who remain close to the squad even in difficult moments. Their presence at Milanello during the week is now customary, as well as at home matches and even those away from San Siro.

Last night, all three unloaded a certain adrenaline and tension accumulated during the 95 minutes and having snatched a fundamental result both in the scheme of the top four battle but also to conquer the recent difficulties.

Milan changed their way of thinking and planning the future after a period of misunderstandings while everyone got to know each other. There were different views on the mercato and on how to manage the club, and between intelligent people the obstacles were overcame.

Immediately after Boban’s dismissal, Gazidis modelled his way of thinking after the first few months, because perhaps he needed to experience what football in Italy and what Milan were like, but Maldini also came close to Gazidis’ thinking on economic management, believing that in this historical period no one can afford crazy expenses.

After years of internal strife and corporate problems, this is exactly what the club needed.
