Mirabelli tells AC Milan: Ban Raiola!

Former AC Milan chief Massimiliano Mirabelli says the club should stop doing business with Mino Raiola.

Super agent Raiola oversaw Gigio Donnarumma's departure from Milan to PSG in a Bosman move this past summer. Mirabelli previously managed to secure Donnarumma to a new contract after it had appeared he was set to leave.

He recalled: "I won a remarkable battle but then this didn't help because after that famous contract there was another battle. I tried to defend the rights of the club and not to lose an important asset without paying commissions. I don't remember such an important player with such an important agent without having paid what you usually pay.

"I tried to put rules but then Milan lost him and it's a shame, first of all that he left, but above all for zero. If I were the club, after such a damage, I would close the doors.

"Then I think of (Alessio) Romagnoli, with the same agent, who risks leaving for nothing. A little respect for clubs would be needed, not only in this moment of crisis. If we want to ensure that the ball does not deflate we must put in rules, the clubs must be at the centre of the football project. When an agent proposes his players the club must know him well and here we return to talk about scouting."
