Ultras mark 'death' of Milan

Fans continue to protest at Milan’s transfer campaign, marking the ‘death’ of the club, while President Silvio Berlusconi could make a video message.

The ultras are furious at a summer that has seen players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Alessandro Nesta, Clarence Seedorf, Gennaro Gattuso, Mark Van Bommel and Pippo Inzaghi leave.

This afternoon a group of fans even created a funeral scene in front of the club headquarters in Via Turati marking the ‘death’ of the Rossoneri with flowers and candles.

This comes just hours after Milan confirmed they were willing to reimburse unhappy season ticket holders, after a group of fans started a class action lawsuit for ‘false advertising.’

“The decision to reimburse season ticket holders has nothing to do with any legal action,” insisted director Leandro Cantamessa.

“It is an issue of style and a response to those who are unhappy. After all, a season ticket holder for a football club is like that of a theatre season. The substitution of a tenor does not equate with reimbursement.

“We are not obliged to play those who are in the squad at the time of the season ticket purchase.”

The situation is deteriorating after last night’s Trofeo TIM saw Milan lose both mini-matches against Inter and Juventus.

It is rumoured President Berlusconi could be preparing a video message for Milan Channel in which he’ll reassure fans on the future strategy of the club.
