MILAN – Only the official team is missing, but with the last few surprises left, Rangnick will be the new Milan manager .
At the same time, Maldini 's farewell is practically certain at the end of this championship.
The current Milan manager considers Ralf Rangnick's requests for " full managerial powers" to accept a role in Milan as an "invasion" .
Maldini invites him to review "the concept of respect" for those who are trying to finish the season "professionally putting the club's good before pride".
“ I have never spoken to Rangnick – declares the Rossoneri technical director at ANSA -.
I don't understand on what grounds they base their statements.
Also because I have never been told anything by the owner “.
Rangnick at Milan, another confirmation: Red Bull weakens him.
The soap opera Ralf Rangnick-Milan is enriched with a new chapter.
His role as technical top for all Red Bull teams has been greatly weakened in these hours:
Rangnick – as reported by the Dpa – became a consultant because he was "overtaken" by Oliver Mintzlaff, promoted by CEO of Leipzig to head of the entire football sector for the Austrian company.
Mintzlaff may have been chosen by Red Bull as Rangnick's natural replacement after the German, by his own admission ("Milan contacted me, I had already warned my club"), had informed the owner of his decision to leave at the end season.
A second interpretation, however, would suggest that the German's continuous references to Milan are a strategy to try to force Gazidis' hand to ratify the first contacts in agreements precisely because he is aware of Red Bull's decision to promote Mintzlaff.
The Rossoneri ownership in these months has always shown itself cautious and has recently recalled that any evaluation on the future of Pioli – whose work remains highly appreciated – will be done, as a practice, at the end of the year.
Gazidis broke up with Boban and Maldini because he chose the German coach against their will.
The rumors about Rangnick at Milan have been chasing each other for some time and have been the basis for the disagreements between Ivan Gazidis and the sports area:
Boban was fired in early March for an un-agreed interview in which he criticized the CEO's actions for failing to warn other executives that he had contacted the German manager.
Two days ago Paolo Maldini had pointed the finger at Rangnick, accusing him of invading the field of others and inviting him to learn respect.
However, Rangnick remains Milan's main candidate for the bench next season (source Ansa).
