MN: Boban, Maldini and Massara could all leave – Almstadt and Moncada temporary solutions

By Oliver Fisher -

It is highly possible that all three AC Milan directors could leave the club before the end of the season, according to a report.

After reports of disagreements between CEO Ivan Gazidis and directors Paolo Maldini, Zvonimir Boban and Ricky Massara, things have exploded over the last 48 hours.

Maldini had denied links with Ralf Rangnick by claiming his is not the right figure for Milan before Boban had his say on the situation, hitting out at Gazidis by stating that the former Arsenal man went behind their backs when initiating contacts with the German manager.

We reported on Monday that the Croatian is set to be sacked by Elliott Management for those comments, but according to the latest from MilanNews he won’t be the only one to leave.

Maldini and Massara could also follow Boban out of the exit door having also been undermined, which would of course create a void in the management between now and the end of the season.

Rangnick will arrive in the summer to fill a role as head coach and sporting director, meaning it would be up to the combination of Henrik Almstadt and Geoffrey Moncada to act as ferrymen before integrating with the structure that will be brought by Rangnick. 

It cannot be excluded that Gazidis may try to keep Massara until the end of the season. Evaluations are in progress, but the farewell of Boban and, presumably, of Maldini also risks creating a void too important for the balance of the team and Stefano Pioli.
