Mon 30 November 2020 | 13:48

Paolo Scaroni, Milan president, did not anticipate the Rossoneri to be the title contenders. He also shed light on the extension of Donnarumma’s contract.

Milan

are the titleholders on the

Serie A

table, with five points in advantage north of

Inter Milan

and

Sassuolo

.

I’ve followed the developments of the team, step by step. We areon the right path

,”

Scaroni

said.

The journey is not over yet, we haven’t included the Scudetto or a Champions League qualification in this season’s budget so I don’t pronounce these words. We didn’t expect these targets but if we reach them I’ll be happy.

“This is a fantastic moment. It's amazing to be table leaders but we need to keep our feet on the ground. The players and the coach are doing it, we are optimistic about the future.

“I didn’t expect such performances, I knew we could do better than last season because or project needed time

.

Elliott have invested so much during these years, there are no short-term programs, I feel reassured that the Elliott fund will continue to be on our side.

“We have the youngest team in Europe, our secret is the strategy of [Ivan] Gazidis and [Paolo] Maldini. We need to build a team that would win and be economically sustainable

.”

Ibrahimović

is sidelined due to the recent injury inflicted on him, he maintains his essential role for Milan, however.

He is more than a player; he is an icon of today’s football. It’s a success that Milan continue to do well also without him. I don’t know when he will be back, this kind of injury requires at least a month but he could surprise us, given his physical strength

.

Notwithstanding his contract expiration in June, the Italy international 

Donnarumma

 is satisfied with his place in Milan.

I am not following negotiations directly,

” Scaroni said.

However, I am happy to hear he loves Milan. I can only say we feel the same, when two parties love each other as we do, there are all the conditions to go ahead together
