So far, so good with the new owners at Milan.
Suso became the latest in a number of high-profile players who have mentioned that the Elliott Management has brought in some good football people to run the club.
Suso told Spanish newspaper Marca that #ACMilan found a sense of calm "after the mess of the Chinese takeover. Everything has changed with the Americans, they brought in people who know about football" https://t.co/qqirtZ5N0x #SerieA pic.twitter.com/YR7mrufuul— footballitalia (@footballitalia) October 14, 2018
Speaking to Marca, Suso said:
Everything has calmed down after the mess of the Chinese takeover.
Now everything has changed with the Americans, they have brought back legends like Leonardo and Paolo Maldini, people who know about football and know about Milan.
It sounds like those offers and rumors about Suso leaving won’t be getting anymore traction, as it seems that Suso’s committed his future to Milan and the new group in charge of the club.
