Adriano Galliani insists this is “a modern Milan” that can win while balancing the budget, getting ahead of the game.
There have been fewer season tickets sold than in any other year since President Silvio Berlusconi took over the club in 1986, as fans are disappointed with the departure of players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Antonio Cassano.
“Milan are competitive and it’s not true that we are no longer ambitious,” insisted Galliani ahead of tonight’s game with Atalanta.
“We have invested a great deal of money in this squad and must try to do well while balancing the books.
“After all, this is what UEFA invoke too. Sooner or later all the clubs will have to adapt to this style of business. It’s a modern Milan.”
