MN: Milan will appoint a new CEO in November as Gazidis could return to MLS

By Oliver Fisher -

Incoming owners RedBird Capital do not intend to renew the contract of CEO Ivan Gazidis who is now expected to leave the club later this year.

MilanNews writes how Gazidis’ contract as Milan CEO will expire in November and the decision of RedBird is that they will let him leave once his contract runs out, as they wish to implement their own man in that role (Gazidis was brought in by Elliott Management).

Several hypotheses are circulating regarding the name of his replacement, but regarding the future of Gazidis the South African executive has been contacted by Major League Soccer about a return to America.

If Gazidis were to accept the offer from MLS it would be a return to origins for him since in 1994 he joined the team of founders and managers of the MLS itself and from 2001 to 2008 he held the role of deputy commissioner.

  1. Thank you Ivan for steadying the sinking ship , not letting M&M leave and bringing new revenues to the club. Although I wouldn’t mind you renewing, I hope Redbird brings in someone who can give Maldini more power and flexibility with signing his targets.

  2. He did great job, and we must not forget his employer was Elliot and wasn’t all as he wanted. He has big role in building this team and has my respect. Hope the replacement will improve his work 🙂
