Zvonimir Boban will not be returning to AC Milan any time soon as he felt ‘humiliated and offended’ after his exit, it is claimed.
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.
La Repubblica reported back in July (via Calciomercato.com) that the matter would be escalated to a civil trial in a Milan courtroom after months in which strategies were established and no reconciliations were found.
Speaking on Sky Italia, journalist and commentator Fabio Caressa addressed any remote idea that Boban could ever potentially return to the club under Elliott.
“The Europa League is very annoying during the season, you have to have two teams. I really like how Milan is built, Boban can not be seen badly,” he said (via MilanNews).
“Theo is extraordinary, Bennacer is Boban’s choice, Saelemaekers was a surprise, Ibra was carried out by Zvone. Is it possible for Boban to come back? Only if those he disagreed with go away.
“He felt a bit humiliated and offended. He had given a lot when he was at Milan, he gave everything emotionally.”
