After taking control of the club and officially becoming the new owner of AC Milan, Elliott is now working to revive the Rossoneri club and bring it back as soon as possible where it deserves to be.
And the first move obviously concerns the management that will have to lead the Red and Blacks. As reported this morning by Il Corriere della Sera, the managers of the American fund, Franck Tuil and Giorgio Furlani, who have followed the team since the first day of training at Milanello, along with Gordon Singer, have in fact started a series of interviews with profiles that could be included in the new Milan organization chart.
Regarding the position of club CEO, the hottest name is that of Ivan Gazidis, 53 years old, he is the current chief executive of Arsenal, he has a managerial background in the American MLS and is very close to the Singer family. If he were to be chosen, it seems difficult that Fassone, who has a contract until 2021, can remain as general manager of Milan. The role of technical director, instead, should be assigned to Leonardo, former player and coach of AC Milan.
Meanwhile, yesterday evening, Marco Fassone and sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli flew to London. The two Milanese leaders will meet in the next hours the directors of the American fund Elliott to clarify the next steps, which will also be decisive to establish the respective future positions. The new Milan is ready to be born, after the Board of Directors (Cda) meeting scheduled this Saturday the picture will more clear.
