Tuttosport journalist Matteo Marani writes about the decline of the Milan clubs in recent years and how it is being turned around in today’s newspaper edition of the paper.

According to Marani: “Juventus and Napoli remain the leaders, while Milan, the great city of Milan that is, has lost a bit of it’s importance. After having been the city of reference for Italian football in Europe for over half a century, with 10 Champions Leagues won, Milano now feels less important, even in terms of the Scudetto race. It is a bit like if clubs from London disappeared from the top places in the Premier League or if clubs from Madrid disappeared from the top spots in La Liga. If you look at the total number of points that clubs have gotten over the past five years, it looks like this: Juventus with 382 points, Napoli with 337, and Roma with 332. That has been unchanged for a few years, but the most surprising thing is that in fourth place is not even a Milanese club, it is Lazio with 277 points. Inter comes in fifth with 266 points and Milan comes in seventh with 242 points.”

Marani then goes on to discuss the corporate changes that the Milano clubs have gone through, focusing on Inter:

“From Moratti to the undefinable Thohir who is still president today! Then from Thohir to the Suning family. The money is not lacking at Inter. A lot has happened in the market these past few years, from Ausilio to Sabatini and even Kia Joorabchian.”
