GdS: Boban and Maldini also under scrutiny from Milan’s owners

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban are also under pressure from owners Elliott Management, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have started the season in historically bad fashion, losing four out of their first six Serie A games for the first time since 1938.

Elliott invested heavily in youth over the summer, spending around €69million (as per Di Marzio) to bring in six players, however they have so far seen a team which appears to be no nearer to securing a return to the Champions League.

A report from il Corriere della Sera – as cited by Calciomercato.com – earlier on Tuesday stated that ‘drastic decisions cannot be ruled out’ as Elliott had ‘lost patience’ with the present state of the club.

And according to an update from La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Football Italia), Boban and Maldini are under fire for their part in the current mess.

Elliott chief Gordon Singer was in the stands at San Siro for the 3-1 defeat to Fiorentina on Sunday, in which the fans protested in the second half.

Although it is believed he did not speak to either of the directors after the game, and the board ‘retains confidence’ in the duo, they are both in the firing line if things don’t pick up soon.
