It’s been four days since Paolo Maldini was sacked by AC Milan and 24 hours after him, Ricky Massara faced the same outcome. The duo had lunch with the Rossoneri manager Stefano Pioli, a report claims.
The news came as a shock to the Milan fans, as well as many club employees, but it’s clear that Gerry Cardinale and his team have a clear way forward. This has already been reflected on the mercato, with many negotiations underway.
According to Sky Italia, as cited by our colleagues at SempreMilan.it, Maldini, Massara and Pioli had lunch in Forte dei Marmi yesterday. It was an opportunity for them all to say goodbye and reflect on the success they have had, without discussing the decision of Cardinale.
Pioli will have a key role in the ‘new Milan’, working even closer with the management and having a decisive say in the signings made. Geoffrey Moncada, being one of the best scouts in the world, will also have a key role.
