It’s now official. Zvonimir Boban is the new Chief Football Officer for the Rossoneri. Here’s what he had to say after his appointment, speaking to the club’s official website.
“I am very happy to return to my beloved Milan and I will give my contribution to bring him back where he deserves to be.
Milan must be a leading and winning club because this is the only nature of its history and it’s the nature of our fans and their passion. I will give all of myself for this cause and for the Rossoneri colours.
When Paolo called me to check on my availability, I jumped into my car and went to his home in Milan in the middle of the night to evaluate the state of the art. After talking with Ivan and the property, everything was clear. And here I am. In my city, at the club I love and in a land that has given me so much. I hope I can repay the trust placed in me.
I would also like to thank the President of FIFA Gianni Infantino who, although he is an “Interista”, has been a true friend and has understood that this was a call similar to the one I got 3 years ago.”
