Silvio Berlusconi has reacted to the new wave of doubts over the new ownership, saying that they’ve always kept their commitments to him during the sale.
Yonghong Li, through Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux, officially bought the club from Silvio Berlusconi’s Fininvest in April.
Despite spending heavily in the summer, there are still many doubts in the newspapers regarding the financial structure and strength of the club and of Mr. Li in particular, with the New York Times and Forbes running stories this week about him, claiming he may be not who he claimed he was when acquiring the club.
It is also said that UEFA have asked Milan for additional documents regarding President Yonghong Li as they want to examine those before giving them an answer regarding the Voluntary Agreement (earlier reports of the Rossoneri’s request being denied by UEFA were premature).
“To sell Milan, Fininvest entrusted advisors, law firms and banks of international standing,” Berlusconi wrote on Twitter today (Wednesday). “The Chinese buyers always met their commitments, and an important fund like Elliott felt able to provide them with a very considerable loan.”
While waiting for an answer from UEFA, Milan have important encounters coming up which they have to win to keep the Champions League dream alive. Tomorrow, they face Austria Wien.
