THE CURVA SUD have made it clear that they have full trust in the club even if they sell Ibra and Thiago.
If you expected the Milan ultras to protest the sales of Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint-Germain you have may to think again as the Curva leaders make it clear that they have faith in the club.
The deal is still not confirmed as there are differences between Ibrahimovic and PSG over the wages, but the Curva Sud – Milan’s ultras – has suggested that Milan can do well even without the two star players.
“Even if Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva are sold, then we won’t be protesting or making any demonstrations,” one of the Curva’s representatives told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “In all these years, [Vice President Adriano] Galliani has demonstrated that he’s the number 1 when it comes to the transfer market.
“Who was Thiago Silva before he joined Milan? And who brought him to Milan?” A guy named Luca added: “There’s still a month and a half left of this transfer window. We will wait before we make any judgments. When the transfer window is closed, then we will draw our conclusions. At this moment, don’t expect us to make any demonstrations for Thiago Silva and Ibrahimovic. The club, especially Galliani, can work calmly.

“In the end, we have rarely been disappointed – both in terms of new signings and in terms of victories.” Giuseppe Munafò, the President of “Associazione Italiana Milan Club” claimed: “This management led us to be the strongest team in the world. We recognize, respect and absolutely trust their professionalism.
“Sure, the fans cannot help but be bitter about the exits of Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva but times have changed and people are struggling to make peace with it. The books to must be balanced and this kind of offer must be taken into consideration. In addition, Inter are decreasing too.” The leaders of the fans are clear: Milan respect and fully understand Milan’s decision to sell the duo; to date, there will be no protests.
The last time Milan sold a big player the year was 2009 and the player was Kaka who moved to Real Madrid. The fans did not agree with this sale and protested outside of via Turati, and bought fewer tickets.
