AC Milan can expect the model imposed by Elliott Management to be copied shortly by other clubs in Italy and beyond, a report claims.
In their latest podcast, MilanNews talks about the Maldini-Massara-Moncada trio who are the technical director, sporting director and chief scout respectively. They are three vital cogs who are helping to perfectly carry out the diktat imposed on them by Elliott Management, which is to build a young and competitive time while also bringing unnecessary costs down.
Many Italian clubs have huge losses and huge debts, and that is why they will have to change the way of thinking to be more in line with the track that Elliott are going down. The American fund are taking pleasure in seeing the team do well but sooner or later they want to win something important, because of the impact that has on and off the field.
It is a contrast to when Leonardo was the sporting director and he was backed with some expensive purchases and totalled over €100m invested into the market, with names like Piatek and Paqueta sticking out. Now Maldini, Massara and Moncada seem to have guided Milan down the right path, and imitation from clubs like Inter and Juventus might just be the sincerest form of flattery.
