AC Milan have been ordered to pay former CFO Zvonimir Boban a hefty sum for sacking him last year, according to reports.
The former Chief Football Officer was fired by CEO Ivan Gazidis back March 7 2020 after an unauthorised interview released to La Gazzetta dello Sport in which the Croatian manager revealed that an agreement was in place with Ralf Rangnick.
During their statement, Milan confirmed that they had dismissed Boban essentially on the grounds of ‘just cause’, something never digested by the former player who immediately decided to resort with legal proceedings.
As Calciomercato.com reports – citing Dagospia – Milan have been sentenced by the Milan Court to compensate Boban. The Croatian won the lawsuit against the club, which will net him €5.375million due to unfair dismissal.
According to what has been learned by Calciomercato though, the club will use their right to appeal the decision, meaning the messy legal battle is far from over yet.
