Grant has a wide-ranging interview with Ivan Gazidis, the CEO of AC Milan, which has become a contender again this season for the Scudetto in Italy. Gazidis, who previously was the chief executive at Arsenal and the MLS deputy commissioner, explains why he decided to take the Milan job; his strategy for the club on and off the field; what it's like to work with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paolo Maldini; his views on why new investors are coming to Italian clubs; his thoughts on the future landscape of European soccer; his stories from the origin of MLS; and whether he'd like to return to MLS as the commissioner someday.
