There is tension inside AC Milan as Zvonomir Boban and Paolo Maldini disagree about the future of head coach Marco Giampaolo, a report claims.
The Rossoneri’s crisis deepened on Sunday night as Vincenzo Montella’s Fiorentina won 3-1 at San Siro to condemn Milan to a fourth defeat in six to begin the season.
That represents their worst start to a campaign in over 80 years, and pressure is growing on Giampaolo with no clear game plan on show yet again.
According to a report from Calciomercato.com, there is evidence of tension between Maldini and Boban just in the difference between their recent comments in the media.
After the Derby della Madonnina defeat to Inter two weeks ago, the Croatian insisted that there is no time to waste and that a quick turnaround is needed.
However, on Sunday night Maldini confirmed his full trust in the head coach and insisted that patience is needed from supporters.
The Calciomercato report suggests that there are ‘two different opinions on Giampaolo inside the club’.
Owners Elliott Management are ‘convinced that they have entrusted the club to the best possible management’, but that defeat against Genoa could spell goodbye for Giampaolo.
