It’s remarkable the number of former players that seem to be on board with the new owners and the new people in charge of Milan. Franco Baresi seems to be the latest former player to be excited about this group in charge of the club.

Baresi, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, said:

Elliott has given off a feeling of real solidity, and it immediately transmitted its ambitions. I hope the owners fall in love with Milan and stay for many years.

Maldini and Leonardo are well aware of the meaning of the word ‘Milan’ and the right path to follow.

They arrived at a difficult time and did very well in the January transfer window. Everyone wanted Paolo to get back into football for a while, and now they’re all happy he’s come home.

The owners have put the right people in charge of transfers at the club, and the club look to be in a prime position to return to the elite of world football.
