Elliott deny Milan approach

Elliott Management have denied reports they contacted anyone to take a management role within Milan, having “the utmost respect” for the current directors.

The US hedge fund would take over the club if Yonghong Li failed to meet October’s deadline to repay the €380m loan.

The Corriere dello Sport claimed today that Elliott were preparing for a future post-Li, asking after Paolo Maldini and current Juventus director Beppe Marotta.

“With regards to certain reports that appeared today, the Elliott hedge fund deny that they contacted football managers for directorial roles within Milan,” read a statement on news agency ANSA.

“Elliott have the utmost respect for the current management of the Rossoneri.”
