CorSport: ‘Tension’ between Giampaolo, Boban after son’s Instagram comments

By Oliver Fisher -

The comments of Zvonomir Boban’s son on social media have caused ‘tension’ between he and Marco Giampaolo, a report claims.

Giampaolo’s reign as AC Milan’s head coach has not got off to the ideal start, with the club having lost four of their opening six games to start the season.

That represents the Rossoneri’s worst start to a campaign since the 1938-39 season, and speculation is rife that Giampaolo could be dismissed if a big improvement is not seen against Genoa on Saturday.

Rafael Boban – the son of Zvonimir – added more fuel to the fire on his Instagram account, answering some questions from Milan fans.

As per Calciomercato.com, he replied to the #giampaoloout hashtag with: “We’ll see what happens” – and on Allegri he added: “He’s very strong”.

He also fired a shot at Giampaolo for good measure: “If the problem is the coach or the players? We have great quality players, I think the problem is the coach.”

According to il Corriere dello Sport – as cited by Calciomercato.com – the comments have helped contribute to some ‘tension’ between Boban and Giampaolo.

However, it must also be noted that Rafael is just 14 years old and as such had no idea of the impact his words would make.
