AC Milan are without a sports director, after the ailing team on Saturday chose to discontinue cooperation with Zvonimir Boban.
The former midtbanestjerne was employed in the job before this season, but now he is already past in Milan. It informs the club on its website.
- We thank Zvone (Boban, red.) for his efforts over the past nine months, and we wish him good luck with his future pursuits.
- Now we must turn our focus on the soccer ball and the important matches are coming, says klubdirektør Ivan Gazidis.
AC Milan has for some years been a good piece from former glory. The club, which among other things has Simon Kjær and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in spillertruppen, however, is right now undergoing a relatively stable period.
Under coach Stefano Piolis leadership, it is only been for a defeat in the last eight league matches, and the club finds itself in seventh place in Serie A.
- Stefano Pioli and his staff do an excellent job, and the performance is getting better every week, says Ivan Gazidis.
the Relationship between Boban and Gazidis have, according to Italian media, has been strained since the in February came to light that Gazidis has been in contact with the former RB Leipzig-coach and sports director Ralf Rangnick.
the Thought should be to persuade Rangnick to take a leading sporting role in the Milan club, but it fell not on good ground with Boban.
In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport he called Gazidis' behavior 'inelegant and disrespectful.'
