Three fronts collapsed, AC Milan was in chaos, and Hong Niao announced the dismissal of Paolo Maldini and the cleaning of four players.
AC Milan was once run by Pioli, who defeated Juventus and Inter Milan last season and won the top of the league again 11 years later. But this season, Milan’s performance has plummeted, and this strong gap makes their gold owner Red Bird Company very dissatisfied.
After Hong Niao, a big American group, joined, AC Milan not only failed to make any progress, but even declined, which made the owner of the club very angry. According to common sense, with the encouragement of the new boss and huge investment, Milan should be able to take this opportunity to move on. However, after being defeated by Inter Milan in the Champions League, Milan fell into a four-game losing streak. Without the Champions League ticket, AC Milan will lose 100 million pounds next season, which is equivalent to the entire income of the team for three seasons.
Hong Niao company therefore pushed the responsibility to Maldini. The management of AC Milan is basically decided by Maldini. Although he is not on the field, he will still intervene in the team’s affairs, which is why Maldini will be responsible for the team. Now, the relationship between Maldini and Hong Niao team has been completely broken. With his personality and absolute control over Milan, it has given sponsors a great psychological burden, so there is almost no doubt about his departure.
From the team’s point of view, AC Milan will also face a big change this summer. Gill’s contract with Ibrahimovic is coming to an end, and only one of them can stay at most. Judging from the present situation, Gill is the most likely person to stay. In addition, Diaz is likely to return to Real Madrid, because the Galactic Fleet is preparing to exchange Diaz for Bellingham’s transfer fee. In midfield, Bakayoko, a valuable but incompetent "waste", will eventually become a free man.
Therefore, in order to strengthen the team’s strength, Milan will eliminate four players. Now, Liverpool have set their sights on Chelsea’s Chick and Frankfurt’s striker Kamata, and are looking for a backup player for Deo. Maybe Pioli can survive this change. He is gentle and has no regrets, but in AC Milan’s view, Pioli is a puppet. Although it can be controlled, it will not help the development of the club much.
