Ralf Rangnick has questioned AC Milan’s management and ownership over the renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
For months it seemed that Rangnick would be arriving in a role as head coach and technical director, leading the Rossoneri on another revolution based on his way of operating at RB Leipzig.
However, things seemed to very quickly fall apart. As Milan went on a fantastic run of results, reports broke during the first half of the 2-1 win over Sassuolo claiming Pioli would be staying on as boss and that the proposed arrival of Rangnick was cancelled.
The German has spoken out about the situation on a couple of occasions, and now he has given an interview to the Financial Times in which he was asked about Milan’s strategy and Ibrahimovic’s renewal.
It is believed that Rangnick was against a new deal for the Swede given his age and playing style, and he questioned the club’s decision making in that regard.
“He is 38 years old and he makes you win games, he is still in excellent shape. His arrival, however, is a contradiction because it contrasts with the strategy they wanted to follow. Which path do you want to follow?,” he said.
Meanwhile, newspaper Il Tempo (via MilanLive) are reporting that Rangnick met the new owner of Roma in London a few days after he closed the purchase. The capital club intend to implement a revolution and would have identified in the German manager the right man to restart.
