Tuttosport: Court battle on the horizon as Boban prepares claim against Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

The disagreement between AC Milan and former director Zvonimir Boban is one which may have to be settled in the courts, a report claims.

The Croatian was sacked after he spoke out regarding CEO Ivan Gazidis’ decision to go behind the backs of the management and agree a deal with Ralf Rangnick for next season.

The former midfielder – who held the role of Chief Football Officer – was officially dismissed on the grounds of ‘just cause’ for the unauthorised interview, however he does not see eye to eye with the ownership.

According to what Tuttosport are reporting on Tuesday (via Football Italia), Boban is ready to use the various legal tools at his disposal to dispute the decision, with the paper speculating that it will end up in court.

Of course, Boban would then be counter-claiming that he was a victim of unfair dismissal and would be out for financial recompense for the situation.
