AC Milan director Ivan Gazidis played a big role in the club’s growth and has credit in this Scudetto just as much as the directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara as well as the team and their coach Pioli. This work is fruit of so much hard work and labor that continued every day despite many upheavals.
Ivan Gazidis granted an interesting interview to those at BBC to discuss his experience in Italian football, the Scudetto victory and what it means. Here are his statements:
“The reality is the Premier League is the Super League. The rest of European football will not be able to just accept that and allow the Premier League to have the global landscape to excel. The Premier League is wonderful. It is incredibly successful all around the world but we also need a competitive balance and the overall ecosystem to remain healthy. These ideas about changing the European landscape come from that sentiment and that discussion needs to continue.”
On the Scudetto triumph, Gazidis said:
“Milan was built on success in Europe so that is a really important part of our DNA. For us, that is our next step, to become more competitive on the European front.”
“Fikayo? He has been extraordinary throughout the season,” he added. “He is absolutely a pillar of this team. He is one of the players we would like to build our team around – and he has been a fantastic addition on and off the field”, concluded Gazidis the interview.
