Italian Lega Serie A team AC Milan signed Polish forward Krzysztof Piatek from Genoa.

And during his presentation today, the club’s CEO Ivan Gazidis spoke what it is to have him at the club.

“His signing is another long-term investment made by the club, always abiding by the FFP regulations,” Gazidis told the club’s official website.

“Krzysztof is exactly the player we wanted, young and talented. Piatek meets our parameters, having already lots of young players in our squad. It’s an exciting moment for me”.

Gazidis also talked about the present and the future of the club.

“We have to build a long-term plan, based on a disciplined team, with a mix of young and more experienced players,” he said.

“Our fans are going to love the Rossoneri project. It’s really special for me to be here at Milanello, a magical place where you breathe football.”

“AC Milan is special, a club that sets an example throughout the world. The past few years have not been easy but we have to take the club back to the top,” he added.

“We are all deeply involved in this project and have important objectives: we want Champions League football”.

“We have to understand and respect the rules imposed by UEFA,” Gazidis explained.

“I spend a lot of time with the football governing bodies and these are people I have related with over a long period of time.”

“We are not able to define the restrictions until we know the outcome of our appeal, only then can we know our limitations,” the CEO commented.

“I was present when the Financial Fair Play was established: the intention was not to punish teams but instead to help them return to a more sustainable path. A clear path to follow is needed to help not only AC Milan thrive.”
