GdS: Boban accepts AC Milan role as he awaits FIFA blessing

By Oliver Fisher -

Zvonimir Boban has accepted a role on AC Milan’s board and is now awaiting the go ahead from FIFA to make the move.

The Rossoneri are continuing to build a new-look staff once again this summer, with Gennaro Gattuso and Leonardo having departed the club last summer.

Paolo Maldini has reportedly accepted a position as technical director with Igli Tare tempted to team up with him as sporting director.

Marco Giampaolo is closing in on becoming the new head coach too, and La Gazzetta dello Sport now reports that Milan are closing in on adding yet another important piece.

The paper claims that ex-midfielder Zvonimir Boban is closing in on joining, and his role would be to act as the club’s figurehead during dealing with Lega Serie A, the FIGC, UEFA and the European Club Association (ECA).

FIFA president Gianni Infantino now holds the power, as he can choose to accept the proposal from Boban – who has been a general secretary at football’s governing body since 2016.

The Croat made over 170 appearances for Milan in a 10-year spell, winning nine trophies during his time at San Siro.
