It looks like AC Milan’s owner will grace the Milan faithful with his presence at Sunday’s match against Inter Milan.

Per Football Italia, Yonghong Li will attend the Derby della Madonnina on Sunday:

The businessman took over the Rossoneri last April, but day-to-day running is left to Han Li, Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli.

However, MilanNews reports that the patron will be in attendance at San Siro on Sunday night when the Diavolo face their city rivals.

The game could prove crucial for Champions League qualification, which is Milan’s minimum aim for this season.

I wonder if he’ll update any of the news surrounding his finances?

And seriously, I hope that people aren’t celebrating this, as this might be one of the most important matches in the Serie A this season. It should be a given that the owner shows up for this kind of match.

On to the links.
