Boban responds to Berlusconi: “He must know how to choose the right words”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Zvonomir Boban has issued a response to the comments of former owner Silvio Berlusconi.

The Rossoneri have not had an ideal start to the season so far, having lost two of their first four Serie A games under Marco Giampaolo to start the season.

Milan were comfortably beaten in the Derby della Madonnina against Inter on Saturday too with goals from Marcelo Brozovic and Romelu Lukaku in the second half enough to seal the win.

A tough trip to Torino is on the horizon too, and we recently revealed through our correspondent Vito Angele that the next two games are key for Giampaolo’s tenure and that improvements must be seen.

Berlusconi oversaw the most successful period in the club’s history, and he spoke out after the derby by claiming he doesn’t even watch the team any more, distancing himself from rumours he recommended Giampaolo to the ownership.

Now, Boban has issued a response to the statements of Berlusconi, insisting he should have essentially kept his mouth shut.

“I’m just saying that I supported them as players,” the Croatian said, at FIFA’s ‘The Best’ awards (via Calciomercato).

“Everyone is free to express their ideas, let alone Berlusconi who has done so much for Milan. Then again, one must know how to choose the right words.

“But that’s okay, because he gave us so much. We have to improve with time and also the coach wants a better Milan: it’s a natural thing.”
