Massimiliano Mirabelli has been relieved of his duties as sporting director, but will remain under contract.

After partying ways with former CEO Marco Fassone, today also Massimiliano Mirabelli said his goodbyes.

Mirabelli met with President Paolo Scaroni at Casa Milan this morning. The meeting took around 50 minutes, and according to Sportitalia and Milannews.it, the Calabrese has been sacked and will no longer fill the role of the sporting director.

While Milannews.it says that the sacking arrived after no agreement over the termination of the contract was reached, Sportitalia claims it wasn’t really discussed in detail, and instead Scaroni handed him the letter which says he’s fired. Mirabelli has a contract with Milan for two more seasons.

Leonardo will soon officially join the club but another sporting director could arrive. There are voices about Napoli’s Cristiano Giuntoli and Lazio’s Igli Tare; but Leo will most likely manage this market.

Not a fan of Igli Tare.
Good luck in your future endeavors, Mirabelli! You’ve worked hard that’s for sure, although everything you touched wasnt turned to gold, all the blame cant be shifted to you as you worked alongside, and in agreement, with Montella and wanted to sign players the coach wanted.

It’s the beginning of a new era at Milan and therefore these changes are necessary. Thanks for your services and all the best in your future endeavors.

While I agree that he should leave, but somehow a certain trend of treating people this way has begun in Milan. After Montolivo, now Mirabelli.. I don’t know if this is also how they did it in the club’s glorious era.

You wrestled off Gigio from Mino and saved us from losing him for free

You saved our season by suggesting Gatuso (whom noone including me believed could rescue something out of an already awful season with Montella).

These 2 things i will always thank you for even though you made costly mistakes which eventually cost you your position.

Thanks for your service and wish you the best.

Both Fassone and Mirabelli were on a fraud boat with Mr. Li so getting rid of them is for the best

Remember how they were announcing big sponsorship deals with different Chinese groups and how much money Milan will generate through chinese market? You know what they made from supposed chinese market? Nothing, nada, null, zero

They were all one big scam

It seems that Rino Gattuso will be replaced by Antonio Conte… It s not ok like that, this kind of revolution

Hey there Alexmilan personally i wouldnt put too much emphasis on this story as Elliot allready stated that Gattuso had their support on the day they took over. Ive alllways liked CalcioMercato but that site has in my view unfortunately been following the trend of releasing tabloid like articles for some time. Gattuso allready proved he can be of value to the Club and players as he made us the 3rd best team point wise of the 2nd half of last season. Conte might be a more flashy name compared to Gattuso but in my opinion he would also be… Read more »

Fired Mirabelli and now apparently made contacts with Conte to fire gattuso. Conte interested but needs two months. How can we rid of gattuso first month of season. I’m worried we are making too many changes with little activity in the market and the only names I’ve heard are bonucci and kalinic leaving with higuain the most likely. With such short time it looks dangerous.

Let’s face it he spent over 200 million euros on transfers he’s the boss he spend money and We didn’t make our projected targets in the corporate world he would have been sacked in the end of season all the top teams run on this model get results or get out

While I don’t think he is among the best at what he does, I think he is a great professional and did not do anything that hurt Milan, but we need someone better. With that said, I think his biggest mistake was signing Bonucci for 42M when our forward line (and maybe midfield) needed an upgrade. That money, combine with Andre Silver’s 38M or Kalinic’s 24M, could have gotten us a top winger/striker. But anyways, a new era (again) has come and I wish him all the best!

I heard they want to fire Gatusso. I think it will set us back. Conte is great but the morale of the team will be hit if they keep making weird changes without bringing in money for transfers.

The new president will be rewarded if they can sell zapata, Montolivo, Betolacci, Kalinic, Borini, Gabriel and I am sure a few others I am missing.
