Marco Fassone quotes

Sep 24 2017

We've had some alarm bells, we are angry and I have come to talk because these defeats should not be considered as routine. Milan should not lose against opponents considered weaker than ourselves.feedback

Sep 24 2017

After this defeat, Montella and [sporting director Massimiliano] Mirabelli will review the tactics and technical aspects of the team. From my point of view, as an outsider, the thing that I disliked the most was the team spirit shown by AC Milan during the first 60 minutes of the game.feedback

Aug 27 2017 - Goldman Sachs

We are already working to reimburse them and we will actually do this really early, possibly at the start of 2018. The level of interest Milan is paying on the €120m is high of course but not terrible. If you consider the debt that Inter or Roma contracted with Goldman Sachs when they were financing, which was about 6.5%, of course this is higher but it's not something terrible. For Chinese people, when you see interest on loans in double digits, for them it's completely normal.feedback

Aug 27 2017

In the end it was our decision. We could have decided to sign three or four players this year and the same again next year, which would probably have been easier to integrate into the team, but with the sporting director we decided to make a big revolution this year. We know it may take a year or so to integrate all of the players but in this way next year we will be in a position just to change two or maybe three who do not perform in the best possible way. It's a calculated risk, in our opinion.feedback

Aug 27 2017

Before new business starts, you need a couple of years when you still lose money. This year and next year, we have forecasted more losses for the club and Mr Li is taking care of this. He has increased the capital and putting money in. The fans appreciate this man who is not so visible here but is spending money.feedback

Aug 27 2017 - Champions League

We are probably the most international club in Italy – Juventus has more domestic titles but European football is in Milan's DNA. We are pleased to have reached the Europa League because it represents an important step and it will be a priority for us this year to come back on to the international stage. But the natural home the club has to be in is the Champions League.feedback

Aug 27 2017

For us in Italy, for our culture, it is very different. For example, the habit was to have owners and presidents who were very physically present: attending the matches, attending the training sessions, doing interviews. It's like an insurance for the fans in Italy to know who exactly the president is and know what he can do for the club.feedback

Aug 27 2017 - Manchester United

Don't forget this is the most expensive investment that there has been in European football after the Manchester United takeover. They hope in two or three years maximum to make the club worth double what they paid for it. But to do that we have to perform on the pitch and off the pitch.feedback

Aug 21 2017

Other signings? At the moment no new signings are planned.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Manchester United

I don't know, he had a meeting with [director Massimiliano] Mirabelli, not with me. He will have talked about his clients and their future.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Manchester United

There's no point denying we have been negotiating for Kalinic for a long time. We are in advanced talks. Will there be another gift? The fans are happy with what we are doing. We've had a chance over the last few days to consider what is still missing and we're seeking it without haste.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Manchester United

If the right opportunity comes up, then we'll take it, otherwise we are competitive as we are.feedback

Aug 04 2017 - Manchester United

We see this as not a one-year project, but over two or three years.feedback

Aug 03 2017 - Manchester United

The doubt we had was whether to make such a significant revolution of the squad or a gradual growth, but Massimiliano Mirabelli and I made this courageous decision and we hope it was the right one.feedback

Jul 28 2017

We all know that in order to purchase a club you need a financial leverage. Moreover, he's talking about figures that are inaccurate.feedback

Jul 28 2017

I was stunned when I read these words this morning. For one thing, because of the style. It's unusual, at least in Italy, for a club to attack another one in such a direct way. Secondly for the inaccuracy of his words.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - UEFA

There are long-term plans that we have submitted to a board of directors which should be a guarantee and we have submitted to UEFA a voluntary agreement which everyone knows about, it's public and should president Pallotta wish to see it, I am absolutely open to this opportunity.feedback

Jul 28 2017

The club's €120million debt compared to the club's revenues is in percentage way better than Roma's.feedback

Jul 28 2017

We have issued a bond which is entirely destined to finance our transfer campaign for this summer and we are currently well below using up this bond.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Heinz

We went to see [Costa's agent] Jorge Mendes; there is a lot you can talk to him about. Costa is a great player but he is of Chelsea. That's all.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Heinz

At this moment there are no negotiations. Our rapport with [Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz] Rummenigge is very good. We've discussed the situation a couple of times, but at this moment they have a valuation of the player that we are not prepared to match. If the situation changes in August, then we are here.feedback

Jul 21 2017

If we renewed with Donnarumma it's thanks to his [Raiola's] insights. He pulled the right levers, he was able to convince Gigio to wed himself to our project.feedback

Jul 21 2017

Let's just say we'll do a little something again. It also depends on sales and in any case we're not in a hurry.feedback

Jul 16 2017

Many names have been mentioned of very strong strikers. We would like to have one from Belotti, Morata or Aubameyang. We will see who our choice falls to, although there are also other names who are yet to be splashed on the front pages by the media. Clearly we are still thinking of doing something else in that position. We are keeping all the options open and we will definitely do something beautiful.feedback

Jul 16 2017

We must also reason with the coach, because the next two friendlies can give some technical indications to him and [director of sport] Massimiliano Mirabelli.feedback

Jul 16 2017 - China

Fortunately we are in China now so we can hold discussions with the owners to understand what our resources are, because they are not unlimited.feedback

Jul 04 2017

I have learned in these situations to approach them rationally, not with the gut. Gigio is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, so releasing him at the end of the season would be a huge loss. This is why I chose to resume talks, although at some point you have to draw a line and cannot go beyond healthy compromise.feedback

Jul 04 2017

I think we are a day or two from the decision, which is down to the player.feedback

Jul 04 2017

Until someone tells me otherwise, I do my negotiating with Mino, who I speak with several times a day. I repeat, I think that the part of the deal regarding the player and family is close, the other is more complicated.feedback

Jun 23 2017

We're working to get to July 3 [pre-season training] with more certainty. From the current market session, one still has to wait for something. It seems late, but the market has not yet officially started, there is still time to put aside what's missing.feedback

Jun 23 2017

There's nothing new. We're still here waiting, but not for too long, for a number of things. From the current market session, one still has to wait for something. It seems late, but the market has not yet officially started, there is still time to put aside what's missing.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Manchester United

Clubs have asked me about Matuidi, like Inter and Juve. We'll see. The Bianconeri pulled out a year ago due to political reasons. Maybe this time.feedback

Jun 19 2017

There were no threats. Our position is clear: Donnarumma is not for sale, and Vincenzo Montella will decide on a weekly basis. As far as I am concerned, he can play every game. However, we cannot run any risks, so we need to seek out another goalkeeper.feedback

Jun 19 2017

If he were to reconsider, not only would he be welcomed back with open arms by Milan the club, but in the end I think also by the Milan fans. Moods can change so quickly.feedback

Jun 19 2017

We can't rely on someone who is coming to the end of his contract, who is perhaps thinking of Real Madrid, especially in such a delicate role as goalkeeper. I have to be sure we've got a focused shot-stopper who is in ideal physical and psychological condition.feedback

Jun 19 2017

Nobody ever doubted he had the right to make this decision. It's perfectly within the rules. But it's one thing to be legitimate, another to work within the ethics of business. The bitterness here has to do with the unpleasant way the situation was handled. It could've been done without damaging the club, but by leaving like this, they have cost Milan €100m. As a club, I really don't know what more we could've done to give Gigio and his family the desire and pleasure to remain. We tried to transmit that to him every time we spoke.feedback

Jun 19 2017

Every time we spoke, face to face or on the phone, Gigio assured us he wanted to stay. It was that way until two days before the last meeting with Raiola. The agent, on the other hand, always said he was not prepared to negotiate on our timescale. So there were two different versions.feedback

Jun 19 2017

For example, if San Siro were to protest during a game, that could take something away from his concentration. From what Raiola says, the lad seems very restless.feedback

Jun 19 2017

All he had to do was say he didn't want to remain and we'd have renewed with a reasonable release clause. Then if the most important club in the world had turned up, even this summer, they could pay Milan that sum.feedback

Jun 19 2017

Donnarumma and Raiola have cost Milan €100m.feedback

Jun 15 2017

He will end his relationship with AC Milan on June 30, 2018.feedback

Jun 15 2017

Mino Raiola has informed me of Donnarumma's decision not to renew his contract with AC Milan. It's a final decision taken by the player. I remember that 10 days ago we made an important offer to the player - even more important that what the newspapers have written. The player made his technical, economical and personal considerations and has decided to reject it.feedback

May 29 2017

We need to know if we still have a goalkeeper, whether he will leave or whether we will have a goalkeeper with an expiring contract. No club would leave a goalkeeper like Donnarumma in the stands, but we cannot have a goalkeeper with an expiring contract.feedback

May 29 2017

Donnarumma is a cornerstone and a foundation for next season. We have told him this right from the first time we met for talks. I can see a willingness to stay in his eyes, but we cannot afford to just sit back and wait for him to make a decision. We need to give Vincenzo Montella his squad for next season on July 3. Our time is more pressing than that of his agent Mino Raiola.feedback

May 29 2017

I am convinced that our offer and our plans with him are good, but we will have to activate a back-up plan if he does not want to renew.feedback

May 28 2017

Mino Raiola is one of the best agents, so I wouldn't criticise what he does.feedback

May 07 2017

He did reconsider and I get the feeling we are very close to a deal with the player and his family, even if we do not want to resort to other types of compromises.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Champions League

We are AC Milan, so we cannot even afford to say 'Let's take it easy and see what happens'. Our idea is to be back in the Champions League as soon as possible, there's no denying that the Champions League is a stage that a team like AC Milan cannot afford to miss, for visibility, finance and prestige.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Champions League

UEFA's decision to grant four spots for the Champions League to Italy makes it our primary objective to take part in the 2018-19 season. From our side, there's a desire to resolve this issue soon. We want Donnarumma to be a pillar of our future. It's certainly one of our priorities.feedback

Apr 14 2017

Vincenzo has all our respect and support and has had it since last June when together we decided to appoint him as AC Milan's coach.feedback

Apr 14 2017

We'll have a significant budget for the next transfer window, Montella has our full endorsement.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Champions League

We have some ideas. The key step is to sit down at the table with the coach and then to work on the market. The budget is important. From the beginning, the president and Mr Han have not hidden from me that the goal is to build a very competitive and ambitious Milan, so I will have the economic means to ensure that we can achieve those goals in the short term. The idea is to get back into the Champions League as soon as possible. It's very important in terms of visibility, prestige and for economic reasons.feedback
