The President of Milan, Li Yonghong posted an open letter to the fans of Milan on the club’s official website.
Li said he wanted to “celebrate” one year of his ownership of the club, and reinforced his desire to bring Milan back to glory:
I’d take this opportunity to stress once again we are fully committed in this project for AC Milan’s growth. Of course, we still have a long way to go to achieve our goal, which is to bring the club back to where it belongs: at the top of European football. While we are celebrating a positive first year, we know this is only the beginning of our project to make AC Milan successful and stable, a project we shall pursue aiming to excellence, and fully respecting all the financial commitments we undertook. Your passion, our passion, will be our daily inspiration.
Li’s ownership so far hasn’t been all sunshine and happy days, but it’s still nice to hear that the President say all the right things. We he back it up? Only time will tell.
