Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis announced earlier this week that he had cancer but was soon diagnosed and is now in very good condition.
I’m really feeling great. I’m working during the day, I am also undergoing some medical checks to start my therapy. I’ll be fine, the most important thing is I can’t wait to get back to AC Milan,”
the former Arsenal director told the official Rossoneri club channel.
“That is important to me. It’s important that the team is growing. The beginning of the season has to be strong.”
He got messages from all over the world, including a large banner by the Milan Ultras.
“I was speechless, it’s incredible. I’d like to thank everyone from my heart. To all the fans, the Curva Sud, which did a wonderful thing, as well as the Association of Milan fan clubs who have written to me. These things give me great strength.
“This strength is like a wind at my back which pushes me forward. Things are easier for me with this support. It’s a bit like being a player on the field, now I understand what the players feel when San Siro is packed and driving the team on.
“That’s how I feel now and there is no better feeling than this.”
While being treated in the United States, Gazidis is working on the transfer strategies and business deals.
“People have written me very special messages. I am ready for this challenge and I’ll surely be back at the club soon. I have complete faith in the club’s staff, we have a very strong team, both on and off the field.
“The club won’t let up. This season will be important for us. Thanks to everyone and always Forza Milan.”
