Galliani refuses Milan questions

Milan’s joint-CEO Adriano Galliani refused to answer questions about Sino-Europe sports at the shareholders’ meeting.

The Rossoneri’s holding company, Fininvest, has agreed to sell the club to a Chinese consortium, with an instalment of €100m reportedly arriving today.

This morning saw a shareholders’ meeting, where lawyer Giuseppe La Scala presented 10 questions relating to the new ownership.

However, Galliani declared that the questions were “not relevant to the agenda”.

“I’ve always maintained that the Berlusconi era has had its day,” La Scala told MilanNews after the meeting.

“I’m happy that Berlusconi and Fininvest have finally decided to walk away. But we need assurances that they’ve done so with parties who can bring Milan back to the top.

“When you think that there’s someone who will apparently put €1bn into Milan, then you have to say they’re thinking big.

“Unfortunately in recent months - not least because of the strange communication policy from the Chinese - do you get the feeling that they’re thinking big? I’m sorry, but I don’t.

“I blame a lack of communication from Fininvest, but also the Chinese. Don’t tell me that they have a different style, everyone has to adapt to the methods and atmosphere of the place where they’re operating.

“If the Chinese want to communicate in this way I’d be disappointed and concerned.

“The positive in my eyes is [incoming director Marco] Fassone, he’s a smart man.”
