GdS: Boban ready to take Milan to court over economic reasons and ‘matter of principle’

By Oliver Fisher -

The case of the dismissal of CFO Zvonimir Boban from AC Milan is likely to go to a tribunal, a report claims, as the Croatian wishes to dispute his sacking.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) notes on Monday, the cameras framed on the lonel figure of Ivan Gazdis for a few seconds during Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Genoa at San Siro. Nobody was at his side, not even Maldini and Massara who will remain as director until end of the season when they too will say goodbye.

The divorce between Boban n and Milan has been made official in the past few hours, but the story is not over. The parties will meet in court as Boban was actually sacked for misconduct, but he will oppose all this because he believes he has always acted in compliance with the contractual obligations established by the position of Chief Football Officer.

Behind Gazidis’ decision, there was the revealing interview given by the former midfielder to La Gazzetta in which he accused the Milan player of having contacted Rangnick without asking the managers of the sports area.

Zvone has no intention of surrendering and is ready to go to war in court because he is convinced he has behaved in the right way. Beyond the economic question (Boban would like a severance pay), for Boban it is first of all a question of principle.
