Lotito and Galliani elected to Senate

Lazio President Claudio Lotito and former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani have new roles, as they were both elected to the Italian Senate.

The elections were held throughout the country on Sunday and are pointing towards a hung parliament.

However, individual results for Senate seats have already crossed paths with the world of football.

Current Lazio President Lotito has won his election to the Senate for Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia centre-right party and will represent the Benevento constituency.

Galliani: 'Yonghong Li funds checked'

Former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani believes Yonghong Li provided “all the necessary credentials” to prove his financial stability.

There have always been questions around the Chinese investor’s €740m take-over of the club, completed in April 2017, with investigations published by the New York Times and Il Sole 24 Ore.

Today the Corriere della Sera goes so far as to suggest Yonghong Li was already facing bankruptcy proceedings before buying the club.

Galliani: Milan or no-one

Former Milan CEO-turned-politician Adriano Galliani has revealed that he turned down offers from other clubs “for romantic reasons”.

Galliani gave three decades of service to Milan, prior to Silvio Berlusconi selling the Rossoneri to Li Yonghong’s consortium last year.

The 73-year-old has since turned to politics, becoming Senator of his old friend’s Forza Italia party ahead of next month’s general election.

Galliani enters politics

Former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has resigned as President of Silvio Berlusconi’s television station to run for the Senate in his Forza Italia party.

Galliani has been working closely with Berlusconi for well over 30 years and that doesn’t seem to be changing.

He left Milan after three decades as their CEO when Berlusconi sold the club to Yonghong Li.

Galliani took on a new role as President of Mediaset Premium, the pay-per-view television channels owned by Berlusconi’s Fininvest holding company.

Milan Derby personality swap

Going into the first Derby della Madonnina of the season, Milan and Inter have swapped their traditional characteristics, writes Susy Campanale.

Milan and Inter share a city, a stadium and a common dialect, but the similarities used to end there. Now both clubs are ruled by faceless Chinese corporations who are rarely even in the country, farming off the day-to-day work to relatively interchangeable directors. How interchangeable? Milan CEO Marco Fassone and director of sport Massimiliano Mirabelli used to work for Inter.

Sacchi: 'I told Milan to hire Sarri'

Arrigo Sacchi reveals he advised Milan to hire Napoli Coach Maurizio Sarri and doesn’t understand their summer spending spree.

Sarri, currently top of the table with the Partenopei after winning all seven Serie A games this season, was picked up from Empoli last year.

“I spoke to (then CEO Adriano) Galliani and then with (then President Silvio) Berlusconi, telling them that if they hired Sarri, they would prove after 25 years to be ahead of the curve, just like they were when they hired me,” Sacchi told GR Parlamento radio.

Galliani: 'Sarri was close to Milan'

Napoli Coach Maurizio Sarri “really was very close to joining Milan” two years ago, confirmed Adriano Galliani.

The former Rossoneri CEO made clear the rumours of negotiations were true when Sarri left Empoli in the summer of 2015.

“Sarri is an absolutely wonderful Coach and, I can confirm, a while ago he really was very close to joining Milan,” Galliani told Mediaset Premium.

It was reported at the time that then-President Silvio Berlusconi rejected Sarri because of his left-wing political leanings.

He had been at the helm since Silvio Berlusconi bought Milan on the verge of bankruptcy in 1986.

After many delayed attempts at a takeover, Yonghong Li completed the purchase and has spent over €211m on the market this summer.

Berlusconi hires Galliani again

Former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has formally been appointed the new President of television company Mediaset Premium.

Galliani was at Milan since Silvio Berlusconi bought the club on the verge of bankruptcy in February 1986 and left when the side was sold to Yonghong Li.

Although Galliani was linked with a takeover at Genoa and proposed as the new Lega Serie A President, he said he would no longer work in football.
