Adriano Galliani admits his Milan exit is over, for now. “President Silvio Berlusconi’s words are sacred.”
The general manager had been on the verge of resigning after a clash with Barbara Berlusconi, the daughter of the President and a member of the Board of Directors.
However, following a long meeting last night, the patron announced Galliani would be staying .
“President Silvio Berlusconi’s words are sacred and have been as far as I am concerned for the last 34 years, even before I started working at Milan,” Galliani told MilanNews.it.
“I do not need to confirm the President’s words, nor comment on them. Were the last few hours tough? Well...”
Galliani was unusually not at the Milanello training camp today, instead meeting the team at Malpensa Airport for the flight to Catania, which is where the interview took place.
It is widely reported Berlusconi rejected Galliani’s offer of resignation, but that the situation could develop over the next few weeks.
