Milan: ‘Marginal, unfounded events'

Milan have responded to allegations of Adriano Galliani’s involvement in the Operation Offside scandal, saying ‘the events are absolutely marginal.'

News broke this morning of an inquiry by the public prosecutor of Naples into tax evasion by 35 Serie A and B clubs and over 100 individuals.

Galliani was named among the suspects earlier today, but the Rossoneri have published a statement in his defence.

A statement on the club’s official website read: “Today, the public prosecutor of Naples decided to give Adriano Galliani a termination notice relating to the investigation for a series of events that are absolutely marginal and not founded and which will come to a resolution, in terms of both tax and criminal law, with a due dismissal.”
