TeleLombardia via Football Italia quoted former AC Milan President Silvio Berlusconi hitting back at current CEO Ivan Gazidis who recently said that his team under the Elliot Fund saved Milan from bankruptcy and Serie D. Berlusconi remarked that those comments should be said in the toilet - I’m not entirely sure what that means and think something is lost in translation from Italian. The former Milan President was seemingly discrediting the claims of Gazidis. He went on to say that the way to get Milan back to glory was to give the club back to him. Berlusconi also offered his two cents on the new stadium project praising the project but stating that he did not feel the San Siro should be torn down. Berlusconi slyly hinted that the stadium should be given to Monza. AC Monza is an Italian club currently in Serie C: Group A at the top of the league after nine game days. The club is owned by Berlusconi and the CEO is Adriano Galliani, after the purchase by Finninvest in 2018.

Moreover, former Milan Director Umberto Gandini discussed Milan’s current problems with Radio 24 via Football Italia and noted the lack of clarity on who is running the shows at the club. He stated the Milan is quite different to other clubs as their owners are ‘not involved in football’ as their goal is to restructure and monetise on their investment. He goes on to say that Milan currently lack a face after the departure of Gennaro Gattuso opening up the likes of Gazidis, Maldini and Boban to answer for the decisions at the club.
