Tuttosport: Gazidis to oversee an ‘international revolution’ at Milan – the key figures involved

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis is ready to oversee an ‘international revolution’ of the club this summer led by Ralf Rangnick.

That is according to Friday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) that claims there will be no room for sentimentality and having former Milan players around. That is because Gazidis is ready to undergo a complete revolution of the Milanese leadership that will begin with Zvonimir Boban’s exit and then continue with the increasingly probable farewell of Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara.

In reality, Elliott and Gazidis have no intention of sacking Maldini, but coexistence with Ralf Ranginick does not seem possible at all. The German, strongly desired by Gazidis, will be at the centre of the new project as both the head coach and sporting director.

So there are already two big powers in the hands of an international figure who will have a say not only on the pitch, but also off it.

In addition to the arrival of Rangnick, there are also two other characters who will acquire greater importance at Milan. One is Hendrik Almstadt, also a German, who is in fact the right-hand man of Gazidis and who will work closely contact with the former Leipzig director on the market.

Greater responsibilities will also be given to chief scout Geoffrey Moncada: his role should not change, but most likely he will be increasingly listened to.
