Umberto Gandini has officially stepped-down as Milan’s managing director, and is expected to become Roma CEO.
The Rossoneri are in the midst of a process which will see Silvio Berlusconi sell the club to a Chinese consortium, Sino-Europe Sports.
It was reported last week that Gandini would be leaving the Diavolo board to take over as Giallorossi CEO, and the first part of that process has been confirmed today.
“After 23 years at Milan, Umberto Gandini leaves us,” an official statement on Milan’s website announced.
“It’s legitimate, dear Umberto, that you built-up a desire to test yourself in a new context, but know that you leave here with great regret and affection which, beyond even your unquestionable professional values, will remain forever in all of our hearts.”
