Rumours that Ivan Gazidis could lose his job at AC Milan over the Super League fiasco are wide of the mark, according to reports.
La Repubblica (via MilanLive) reported this morning that Elliott were certainly attracted by the idea of obtaining higher revenues through the Super League, but did not appreciate the moves of Gazidis to try and put the plans in place.
The work of the former Arsenal manager is beginning to bear fruit from a finance and brand strategy point of view but his relationship with the other members of the management is not convincing, with Paolo Maldini publicly admitting before the Sassuolo game that he did not know about the Super League launch.
However, this morning’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports this morning that from sources close to the club they let it be known that the rumours about Gazidis being at risk after the chaos of the Super League are unfounded.
The South African manager continues to have the support of the American ownership and will continue in the management of Milan according to contract. This is backed up by Daniele Longo, who confirms that the position of Gazidis is not at risk.
