About 200 fans were outside of Silvio Berlusconi’s house in Arcore and 3 of them had a brief encounter with il Presidente.
At 20:30, around 200 Milan fans from the Curva Sud group gathered a few meters outside of Berlusconi’s Arcore residence with banners, choirs and smoke bombs.
The fans, who are waiting for signings which seem unlikely to arrive soon as the signing on the preliminary gets postponed time and time again, had slogans and signs such as “Who are the Chinese?”, “Enough messing about!”, “Galliani, Milan hates you!”, “Respect your fans!”, “Immediate clarity on our future!”, “Galliani is the embarrassment of Milan”, “Galliani when will you leave?”, “We want a president!”, “€400 million in May, €200 million in June, €100 million in July 15, €15m yesterday, Tomorrow??”
It was a relatively peaceful protest and at one point a delegation of 3 Curva leaders were invited in by Berlusconi and they spoke for about 30 minutes. According to Milannews.it, the fans asked Silvio for clarity on the state of the negotiations and asked for a new project in case Berlusconi doesn’t sell to the Chinese investors, with a generational change at management level.
La Gazzetta dello Sport writes that Berlusconi confirmed his intention to sell the club but at the same time conceded that there are problems emerging from the Chinese consortium, which is apparently being led by the businessmen Sonny Wu and Steven Zheng. Those difficulties are believed to be mostly bureaucratic, especially related to the transfer of funds all the way from China to Italy.
The Ultras have been protesting inside the Stadium for a while now & unless there are developments in the near future, it seems that the fans will keep protesting against the club this season.
