Report: Milan Lab relaunched as a research centre led by Dr. Mazzoni and 15 staff

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have decided to reopen the famous Milan Lab that was established in 2002 but vanished from the media’s attention in recent years due to a lack of success.

Milan were a pioneer in the field of sports medicine during the 2000s. The now world-famous Milan Lab extended the career of many players well into the 40’s and helped Milan to a lot of silverware with its innovative methods, but suffered a decline as we detailed in our feature.

According to MilanPress, Milan Lab is back and will be the ‘highly technological interdisciplinary research centre’. The historic structure – founded in 2002 under the management of the then-CEO Adriano Galliani – will be entrusted to the head of the medical sector Stefano Mazzoni.

It will have a more scientific vocation and will be used for the study of performance of all age groups from the first team to the Under 14s. Dr. Mazzoni will co-ordinate a team of about fifteen people, 12 of whom will be dedicated to the Lab at Milanello itself.

Andrea Riboli will join the team, a 36-year-old with a PhD in Sports Sciences and former collaborator with Atalanta. He will work on the development of high performance, boasting specific research on elite footballers and fatigue.

    1. Depends on the level of expertise the people there working have. The first MilanLab was a huuuuuge success but once the main characters left it went all downhill.
