The AC Milan squad have been described as being ‘in revolt’ after the news about the departure of Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara.
A report from La Repubblica confirms that Maldini will leave Milan and that an ‘American revolution’ will start soon, with the team ‘in revolt’ upon hearing the news that the technical director has been sacked.
If you follow our Substack none of this would come as a surprise, given we reported last week that there are some differences that have arisen between the pair.
Ricky Massara will also leave too, as was confirmed during Maldini’s meeting with Gerry Cardinale yesterday. The main players in the squad such as Rafael Leao, Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez ‘didn’t take it well’.
After a meeting in a hotel in the centre of Milano that lasted one hour, it became clear that Maldini and Massara would be departing the Rossoneri due to ‘irreconcilable differences’ with the ownership ground RedBird Capital.
The duo will therefore divorce from the team that under their leadership obtained a Scudetto, a semi-final in the Champions League and a third consecutive qualification for the most important club tournament in the world.
As mentioned, the key players in the dressing room have not taken the news well at all given how influential the pair have been in bringing some of them in but also how close they are, given their presence at training almost every day.
