AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has denied the rumours that he will leave his role at the club, confirming he will stay president.
A statement on the club’s official website earlier this week confirmed that RedBird are the new owners of the club, completing the takeover from fellow American fund Elliott Management.
There have been rumours that Scaroni would leave his role as Milan’s president to become the CEO of the Milan-Cortina 2026 Foundation. He responded to them at the Piazza Diaz in Milano on the occasion of the the 40th anniversary of the death of General Carlo Alberto.
“I like Milan, I like Cortina, I like the Olympics, but I have so many commitments that I see it as an impossible operation,” he said (via PianetaMilan).
“When you have a position, then you also have to do things. How do I do with all the things I have to do? Will I remain president of Milan? Certainly. I am a Milan fan and I had some small satisfaction with Milan, we agree.”
Of course, there are still a number of roles that must be defined after the takeover took place, including that of CEO given that Ivan Gazidis’ contract expires in November.
