In recent weeks, Ralf Rangnick has been heavily linked with AC Milan, with reports suggesting that he could take on a role as both sporting director and manager. The news, however, didn’t go down well within the club.
Instead of denying the reports, though, technical director Paolo Maldini simply stated that he doesn’t think Rangnick is the right profile to associate with Milan (to Sky Italia via MilanNews.it). Now, Chief Football Officer Zvone Boban has joined in.
Once again, the rumours linking Rangnick to Milan weren’t denied, but rather confirmed. The Croatian had a few harsh words for CEO Ivan Gazidis, stating that the former Arsenal man went behind their backs when initiating contacts with the German manager.
“Rangnick? The fact that we are talking about these things is not good for anyone. The worst thing is that it happens at a time when Pioli is doing a great job.
“Not having warned us was disrespectful and inelegant. It’s not the Milan way. At least what we remember as AC Milan,” he stated.
We can only hope that the management will come together, and as Boban stated in the same interview (READ HERE), a meeting should take place soon with the owners to set things straight.
