QUOTE
Galliani heading for Milan exit
By Football Italia staff

Vice-President Adriano Galliani is on the verge of ending his love affair with Italian giants Milan, reports suggest.

Galliani, a loyal servant to President Silvio Berlusconi and the club’s CEO, is heading for the exit after the emergence of Barbara Berlusconi at San Siro.

Barbara, daughter of Silvio, will reportedly take control of the day-to-day running of the outfit from next summer after raising doubts about the club’s present direction.

However, a change could take place sooner given the breakdown in relationship between Barbara and Galliani.

“I’ve received a severe blow to my reputation and I won’t stay here to burn on a slow fire,” Galliani is quoted as saying by the Corriere della Sera.

The Gazzetta dello Sport and the Corriere dello Sport claim Galliani will wait eight days for the club to facilitate his exit – with a substantial pay-off – or he’ll simply resign.

Galliani, 69, first dealt with Berlusconi back in 1979 when he was involved in the television industry.

His entry into the world of football came as Vice-President of Monza from 1984. Two years later he joined Milan.

I call total BS.

We'll see.

It might just end with a very strict demarcation of duties. Perhaps Galliani looks only at commercials from now on.

Or it could be true and he walks out. Then we might be in trouble. We are struggling to adopt a model where we don't need Silvio's cash. Now suddenly there's a new model where we no longer have Galliani and his connections. I don't think this will end well.

I think of Juve after Moggi and the Alessio Secco disaster.

Where? I see it in the media, yes, but the club hasn't endorsed it one way or the other far as I can see.

He referred to Ansa to make official his intentions.

Ahhhhh, so by 'official' you mean he himself did indeed say this. I know that.

Thought it was club official (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Not the first time he's told a bare-faced lie. If he was resigning, why wait till CL is over? Why not go straight away? It's more destabilising to threaten to leave than to actually do it.

I'm dubious.

Full statement

I'm leaving, with or without severance package. I'm offended, this is not how you operate when you want to change things, it's done with elegance. I'm resigning in the next few days, maybe I'll wait for the game against Ajax.

I will let some time pass before I decide what I'm going to do in the future. For now I won't accept anything from anyone. When you're offended, you must have the intelligence to let some time slide: you must be bright in taking decisions.

Leaving before the game against Ajax would be disrespectful to the team I have been supporting all my life. It's been said that Milan miss-spends and doesn't have scouts like Roma and Fiorentina, but Roma in the last five years has only been once in the Champions League, and Fiorentina never. In the last two years we managed to balance the books, other clubs have mountains of debt. Last year all our youth teams made it to the Final Four.

He didn't want to involve the club in this. That's why he talked to Ansa instead. The guy is seriously butthurt.

I think that would apply better to Silvio, honestly.

Too true, but Galliani has put his faith in the wrong people, honestly. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mellow.gif) Riola and Allegri has been his lethal undoing, the latter in particular. This nothing coach should never have been signed in the first place. At this point in time, this transition phase, we needed someone experience to take over from Leo, someone proven.

I'll be sad if he Galliani leaves, but I'll be even more angry if he stays. Silvio isn't a saint either, I agree.

Agree, Galliani shot himself in the foot twice over this summer when he let Allegri stay after that disaster of a season and by also appeasing said coach and buying him an over-priced Matri from a direct rival
