Repubblica: The courts are ready for Boban vs. Milan – let the legal battle commence

By Oliver Fisher -

Zvonimir Boban will not go down without a fight, and a legal battle with AC Milan is reportedly on the horizon.

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.

According to what is being reported by La Repubblica on Wednesday (via Calciomercato.com), the civil trial will begin either today or tomorrow in a Milan courtroom after months in which strategies were established and no reconciliations were found.

Boban believes that he was unfairly dismissed by Milan and as a result will be seeking compensation, and now it will of course be up to the judiciary system.
