Milan President Paolo Scaroni reportedly had a briefcase containing €10,000 stolen from him on Friday.
According to Corriere della Sera, Scaroni was in the middle of an appointment when the thief opened the backdoor of a car he was in, took the briefcase and ran away.
The broadcaster explains the driver tried to chase the criminal, but a woman, ‘probably an accomplice’, blocked them off and then fled herself.
The thief and woman would have then got on a bus in the Largo Augusto area, not far from the Duomo cathedral, before the case was later found with just possessions and documents belonging to Scaroni and no money inside.
It caps off a difficult day for Milan, who are still reeling from their Europa League exit and were punished by UEFA for Financial Fair Play (FFP) breaches.
