President Silvio Berlusconi has announced Milan “will have two general managers: Adriano Galliani and Barbara Berlusconi.”
This solution was introduced after a four-hour meeting with Vice-President and current general manager Galliani last night.
Galliani has threatened to resign after clashes with Barbara Berlusconi – the President’s daughter and a member of the Board of Directors – but today the President stated he would remain.
“Today we reached a full agreement on how to organise the club,” Berlusconi said in a statement to news agencies.
“There will be two general managers: one is Adriano Galliani, who will deal with the sporting sector, while Barbara Berlusconi will manage the other sectors.
“As for myself, I have promised to be closer to the club and the team.”
However, it remains to be seen where Paolo Maldini fits into all this, as Barbara Berlusconi had already contacted him to take over as new technical director.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Galliani made the first step this evening by phoning Barbara and noting "we will collaborate for the good of Milan."
