Milan reshuffle directors

With Milan's change of ownership, Adriano Galliani will become executive vicepresident, while the CEO role will go to Nicholas Gancikoff.

The Rossoneri's sale to the Chinese was confirmed by president Silvio Berlusconi yesterday, and is expected to become official next week.

While the new board of directors won't be nominated until further down the line, the Gazzetta dello Sport is certain that some details of the executive reshuffling have already been decided.

In particular, they believe that Galliani's role will change from that of joint-CEO to executive vicepresident. The difference in terms of his future responsibilities is still not exactly clear, as he is currently acting not just as CEO but as sporting director, and he may or may not retain his role on the transfer market.

Barbara Berlusconi also shared the role of CEO, but she dealt with the club's commercial side. While she may retain a position within the board, she is likely to be given a different title too.

The full CEO responsibilities will go to Nicholas Gancikoff, who will become Milan's go-to man for all financial matters.

The Oxford and Columbia graduate is specialised in the construction and management of new stadiums and will also deal with that aspect of the Rossoneri's aspirations.

Silvio Berlusconi, who retains 20 per cent of the club's shares, will be nominated honorary president, just like Massimo Moratti was for Inter.
