Taechaubol: 'Milan Scudetto and Champions'

Bee Taechaubol has a deal to invest in Milan with Silvio Berlusconi. “Our objective is to win Serie A and the Champions League.”

The Thai businessman met with Berlusconi today and it emerged he is ready to buy a minority stake in the club, as the current President wants to keep 51 per cent.

“We defined the structure of the deal, though there are some details that need to be sorted out,” Taechaubol told Sky Sport Italia.

“There’s still something missing and we are working to conclude the deal. I cannot say when precisely, but I believe within a few weeks.

“Will it be 49 per cent or 51 per cent? I cannot comment on that. You will find out soon.

“Milan is the best team, a legendary club known all over the world. Our objective is to get back to winning ways in Serie A and also the Champions League.”

If Berlusconi is staying on as President and majority shareholder, then what of joint-CEOs Adriano Galliani and Barbara Berlusconi.

“I cannot say anything yet, but the Berlusconi family has always been very important for this club and it will continue to be.

“We can say that we will do our best for Milan and for its fans.”

It has been widely reported that ‘Mr Bee’ has a conglomerate behind him including Doyen Sports, especially as Nelio Lucas was in Milan today.

“He is my friend, but totally extraneous to the negotiations,” insisted Taechaubol.
