Milan dragged into modernity

Rather than downsizing of ambitions, fans should see the Ivan Gazidis revamp as dragging Milan into becoming a modern football club, writes Richard Hall.

A new era is emerging for the Rossoneri and it doesn’t include Gennaro Gattuso or Leonardo. Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis has moved on behalf of Elliott Management to make sure the club operate with a new philosophy, even if it is based out of necessity. There will be no more big transfer fees, there will be a concerted effort to balance the books and there will be a focus on youth. Whilst this might be an unfortunate situation for the red and black half of the city, it could just perhaps be the making of them.

Gazidis: Maldini 'central' to vision

Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis claims Elliott Management saved the club from bankruptcy and that Paolo Maldini is ‘central’ to his vision for the Rossoneri.

Leonardo and Gennaro Gattuso vacated their roles as sporting director and Coach of Milan on Tuesday, and Gazidis began by paying tribute to the pair.

“Elliott saved the club by injecting them with €220m of capital so they could meet their obligations at the end of July, otherwise they would’ve gone bankrupt with the risk of relegation,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Roma need new Coach candidates

Roma have been turned down by Antonio Conte and Gian Piero Gasperini, so look to Marco Giampaolo, Roberto De Zerbi or Gennaro Gattuso.

The Giallorossi sacked Eusebio Di Francesco in March and brought in Claudio Ranieri as caretaker manager, but are finding it difficult to lock down a long-term replacement.

Conte was their first choice, but has just agreed terms with Inter, while Gasperini committed his future to Atalanta with a new three-year contract today.
