Journalist explains what was ‘certainly’ said during Maldini-Cardinale meeting

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan owner Gerry Cardinale was back in Italy for last night’s Champions League last 16 first leg against Spurs, and he met with technical director Paolo Maldini.

Cardinale was at San Siro for the first time since the 2-0 win over Juventus back in early October and his trend of seeing home wins continued after the 3-2 derby victory against Inter in his first appearance and the aforementioned triumph over the Bianconeri.

Prior to the game, Maldini confirmed the rumours that had been circulating in the media suggesting that a meeting was going to take place between him and the RedBird Capital number one.

“I won’t tell you what we said, we hadn’t seen each other for a long time. We talked about many things, we updated on the moment and we talked about this game.”

Mediaset journalist Claudio Raimondi spoke to MilanNews during which he was asked about what Maldini said to the broadcaster about the meeting he had with Cardinale and what the contents might have been.

“They certainly said that the market line will not deviate from that of the old owners, also because Cardinale’s priority is the stadium and an eventual effort will be made there,” Raimondi began.

“Maldini will have expressed his reasons, but it is certain that the line will he will be close to building a Milan without pre-made champions, but with champions to be coached.”

  1. The stadium needs to be built, especially after taking in nearly €10m on ticket sales last night alone. That needs to happen, we can’t keep throwing money away on the San Siro even though it’s our spiritual home.

  2. haha.. it’s just an excuse, the new stadium will be build in next 3 or 5 years, so it’s mean same excuse will be used for now till stadium finishd to not invest on quality big signing

  3. Elliot control Redbird basically so no surprise here…stadium? Let’s pray but when in 2046? Lol. By the time one gets built these current crop of players will be sold or will leave and the cycle of low cost spending repeats itself
