Pioli addresses rumours of Milan takeover: “The future could be even better”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has insisted he knows little about the potential takeover of the club by Investcorp, but did comment on the future prospects.

There are now a number of reliable sources suggesting that the Bahrain-based fund are close to buying Milan from Elliott Management for a figure around the €1.1bn mark, which would mark the third change in ownership in five years since Silvio Berlusconi’s tenure ended.

Pioli spoke to the reporters who gathered early on Monday morning for the pre-match press conference on the eve of the game against Inter and spoke about a number of topics, and of course the potential takeover was brought up.

“We haven’t talked about it. The club are always close to us, they always support us. Milan’s present is solid, the future could be even better,” he said.

The latest from MilanNews suggests that there should be no immediate worries for the sporting side of the management because they should remain in place in the event that Investcorp do buy the club, but of course at this stage nothing can be excluded.
