It appears that two key figures at AC Milan are currently under the scrutiny of owners Elliott Management, according to a report.
This morning’s edition of La Repubblica (via MilanLive), writes that Elliott were certainly attracted by the idea of obtaining higher revenues through the Super League, but did not appreciate the moves of Ivan 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.
The paper adds how it seems that Stefano Pioli is also under observation. The coach – who was deemed untouchable until a few months ago thanks to the excellent results achieved – is now no longer sure of staying. Elliott do not want to risk missing qualification for the Champions League, which would yield around €50m in revenues.
President Paolo Scaroni is almost certain to stay as he must be given credit for having included a decisive clause in the Super League affair.
