Fans mock Milan over bus sale

Milan - AC Milan have been mocked on social media over reports that they have sold their luxurious team bus to cut costs.

Italian media widely reported that the seven-times European champions had sold the vehicle for €150 000 and hoped to save €200 000 per year in costs.

One Twitter user posted a photo-shopped picture of the Milan players standing by the side of a motorway behind chief executive Adriano Galliani, who was holding a sign which read "Rome".

Another posted a picture of a tram with the caption "exclusive pictures of AC Milan arriving at San Siro."

Serie A has fallen behind the Europe's other top leagues in financial terms and, like Italian clubs, AC Milan, who have not officially commented on the bus, have been forced to cut costs over the last few season.

They finished eighth in Serie A in 2013/14, missing out on European football, and are currently eighth at the halfway point in this season's championships.
