Paolo Maldini did not always fully listen to Geoffrey Moncada’s ideas when it came to players that he suggested signing, it is claimed.
Through a statement on their official website earlier today Milan confirmed Maldini’s departure and one is expected to follow for Ricky Massara too, meaning the club are now without a technical director and a sporting director.
One man who does seem nailed on to stay is chief scout Geoffrey Moncada, and it is expected that the Frenchman will get even more responsibility than he had before as part of the new-look management.
According to what MilanNews journalist Antonio Vitiello said on a Twitch stream (via Universo AC Milan), Moncada ‘was not listened to much’ by Maldini every time he proposed names to strengthen the squad.
Now, the head of the scouting will have more prominence in the recruitment process and therefore the names he puts forward are much more likely to be listened to, if Vitiello is correct.
