Briatore says AC Milan should fire Gazidis: Insulting!

Italian magnate Flavio Briatore says he'd fire AC Milan chief exec Ivan Gazidis.

Briatore insists there's some good owners in Serie A - but is no fan of former Arsenal chief Gazidis.

He told Radio Radio: "In Italy every other day, someone asks me to do something in the world of football. Already there are some good ones in Italy, but they do the job: (Massimo) Cellino, the Pozzos, they are all professionals, even (Aurelio) De Laurentiis is another very good patron.

"One thing is certain, and I speak from personal experience: in 90% of the cases if you are rich and want to become much less rich, you buy a football team, as I did with the Queens Park Rangers.

"Milan? There is a managing director (Ivan Gazidis) who says 'we are like Serie D': if I were the major shareholder of Milan I would have already fired him. A phrase like this is an insult to Milan fans and to those who put so much money into football."
