MN: Milan fans must get used to Elliott Management’s policy – no big spending like Fininvest

By Oliver Fisher -

Elliott Management continue to remain committed to cutting the losses that AC Milan make, according to one journalist.

In his latest column for MilanNews, Franco Ordine discussed debate these days is centred around Elliott’s politics and their vision. They have managed to reduce the budget deficit of the last season by 50% to just under €100m, but to make €100m in losses every season is not sustainable.

In the past the Milan fans have become well accustomed to Fininvest who intervened in the market every year, making investments to strengthen the squad, but now they have to get used to another owner and above all to another policy.

The key word is “sustainability” which means that Milan must try not to lose certain figures. The objection from fans is that if the team are not strengthened then deep runs in the Champions League will not arrive and the chance to make more revenue vanishes. Moreover, Ordine writes that the €4m per season salary ceiling is considered not an absolute limit but a rough indication for some members of the squad.

  1. No big spendings — no big trophies. I hope someone else will buy the club. We need big names and proper investment in young talents, instead of selling them out and using clubs great history for marketing purposes.

  2. If the $4 million per year ceiling is only an indication for some members of the squad,than PAY KESSIE WHAT HE IS ASKING FOR!! Please,stop with the bs,some of us actually understand calcio and economics….

  3. Milan fans have to understand that AC Milan isn’t the same institution as it used to be in terms of revenue. The team doesn’t have the same income as it used to when it became UEFA Champions League winners. The team has been absent from big European tournaments for 7 years. So it needs to regain its recognition and popularity once again. I think Serie A is starting to increase its popularity. Although it might take some years for that. I think Liverpool is a great example to look at when comparing to AC Milan because they went through a similar situation. So fans shouldn’t expect big transfers right away. Probably in few years, but not yet. People should take a look at this report before arguing about it.

  4. Don’t forget that the best gk to ever play for AC Milan is Antonio Donnarumma with 100% clean sheet.
