Conflict with board of directors
The core of the conflict with the board of directors was a possible bid for Monte dei Paschi di Siena and the plan to separate the Italian business and the foreign business of UniCredit, Reuters learned from insiders. Mustier wanted to keep UniCredit out of the merger carousel in Europe and, according to insiders, has resisted the takeover of Monte Paschi.
