The chief executive of AC Milan, Ivan Gazidis, earlier this week apologised to the first team squad for a delay in communication and his past month's absence, according to Italian newspaper La Gazetta dello Sport.

His apology was made as he returned to the club's training ground for the first time in about three months – ahead of Milan's Coppa Italia match against Juventus.

Here, he also discussed with the squad their acceptance of a 50 per cent salary reduction in April to make up for the losses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
