There appears to be no truth in the rumours that the AC Milan management are divided once again, according to one journalist.
There has been some speculation in the media suggesting that CEO Ivan Gazidis and technical director Paolo Maldini have not exactly seen eye to eye over recent affairs regarding the Rossoneri.
Speaking before the game against Sassuolo, Maldini made the shock revelation that he had no idea about the Super League’s launch until he saw it on Sunday, effectively confirming it had been agreed without his involvement.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) then wrote how the Super League is a ‘new clash’ between Gazidis and the former captain. The South African manager’s attempts at revolution have always ended in defeat: first with Ralf Rangnick, then the Super League, and in both cases he went against Maldini.
Peppe Di Stefano spoke live during the broadcast ‘Il Calcio è Servito’ and reported the latest news from Milan in view of tonight’s match against Lazio.
“Yesterday Milan arrived in Rome, a day earlier than they usually do when they play away. Maldini, Gazidis and Massara, in recent days, have always been with the team, including lunches,” he revealed (via MilanNews).
“Milan can’t go wrong with anything. For Lazio it is the last chance to get on the Champions League train, while for Milan, perhaps, it is the last chance for second place. The Rossoneri do not want to throw away the good things they have done so far.
“For the first time, Milan will play with Mandzukic in the starting eleven, but it is clear that Ibrahimovic’s absence weighs heavily. Pioli’s team still has their own destiny in their hands, but for 2 months they have lost or drawn at home, and won away. They must continue like this away from home.”
