Li: 'Milan bankruptcy fake news!'

Former Milan owner Yonghong Li has hit back at Ivan Gazidis’ claim that Elliott Management saved the club from bankruptcy, calling it “fake news”.

However, he recently opened an official account on Twitter - which is banned in his homeland - to relay his side of the story to Milan fans.
