Representatives from both AC Milan and Elliot are giving their cases to CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) on whether or not AC Milan should be banned from any European competition next season.
UEFA previously announced that the Italian club would be excluded from European competition in 2018-19. The reasoning behind the ban was not having confidence in then owner Yonhhong Li, who failed to repay the debt owed to American Hedge fund Elliott Management.
They didn’t believe that Li would be able to pay back the debit and get the club out of FFP sanctions. Now with Elliott having taken over, and the club no longer indebted, there is hope the Swiss court will overturn the ruling.
Peppe Di Stefano told Sky Italia: “Prediction on how it will ends? It is difficult to say, but the more time passes, the more it means that the court is willing to listen to Milan.”
