AC Milan’s turnaround continues with the appointment of Leonardo De Araujo (“Leonardo”) as the Club’s Sporting Director, with immediate effect. An emotional come-back for the “milanisti”, the procurement of a world-class talent with international standing will fundamentally strengthen the team’s competitiveness on the world stage.
Paolo Scaroni, Chairman of AC Milan, stated: “The return of Leonardo, a redblack and world cup champion, to the Club is another step forward in our path to success. Leonardo’s appointment is another sign of Elliott’s commitment to bring in world-class and experienced leaders, who know what it takes to restore AC Milan to greatness. Leonardo will be in charge of managing the Club’s sporting area, including the transfer market, and – starting from this transfer window – he will have all the financial support he needs to strengthen and rationalise the team within UEFA’s Financial Fair Play framework”.
A press conference has been arranged for Thursday 26 July at 4:30 pm CET at Casa Milan.
