AC Milan have confirmed they have sacked Chief Football Officer Zvonimir Boban following a falling-out between the Croatian and CEO Ivan Gazidis.

Milan have sacked former attacking midfielder Zvonimir Boban after his public row directed at club CEO Ivan Gazidis.

Boban had been working alongside club legend Maldini and the pair were credited for the appointment of former manager Marci Giampaolo as well as his subsequent sacking.

However, reports lately suggested that despite the Rossoneri’s good form lately, Gazidis has already earmarked another coach for Milan next season.

As per reports, Gazidis has elected to sign former RB Leipzig head coach Ralf Rangnick to take over next season and did so without consulting Boban or Maldini.

The Croatian aired his frustrations in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport recently, saying:

“Until a few days ago, I didn’t think it were true that there were two souls within Milan, albeit taking into account all the thousand initial difficulties, cultural differences and very different passions for the Rossoneri cause.”

After a long row and statements directed at Gazidis, the Rossoneri have now relived Boban of his duties.

The club thanked him for his efforts and wished him well for the future in a statement on their official website.

Milan currently lie seventh in the Serie A standings and are hoping to finish a season that started badly on a good note.
