AC Milan chief Gazidis: Fans now understand how club must be rebuilt

AC Milan chief exec Ivan Gazidis feels the fans now understand how the club is being rebuilt.

Milan remain under the ownership of hedge fund Elliott, which are seeking a long-term buyer.

Gazidis said, "The question of governance is fundamental, we must remember that everything is based on clubs.

“Milan will have to answer a series of questions about our financial health. So Financial Fair Play still exists.

“[In 2019] we wanted a sustainable football project and we were punished with a year's suspension from international competitions," he continued.

“I accept that, but the rules must be the same for everyone. Are they? You have to ask UEFA, its credibility is at stake.

“We at Milan do not want to say no to ambitions but give the club the strength to build a successful and independent future.

“People talk about €10m as if it were not real money, but in the end you have to pay the bills: I want Milan to be solid enough to do it.

“This club must not be saved, it must be re-built. And if it's built right, it'll stand on its own and look ahead.

“I said from day one that it would be difficult, sometimes we need unpopular decisions, but the fans begin to understand our model.

“Two and a half years ago, there was so much scepticism, inside and outside the team, now no, people support us."
