Boban could join AC Milan rivals

AC Milan former chief football officer Zvonimir Boban could soon make his football return at a new club in Serie A. 

At the beginning of March, AC Milan sacked Zvonimir Boban. The Croatian was let go because of his unauthorized interview with La Gzzetta dello Sport. The true reason was in fact his strong criticism towards Ivan Gazidis.

Boban publicly blasted the Rossoneri CEO for agreeing to appoint Ralf Ragnick as coach without informing anyone else at the club. The former AC Milan Chief Football Officer would later sue the club for unjust firing.

There has been no reconciliation since then and the case is still in court. However, Zvonimir Boban could soon make his return in Serie A but this time with a rival club.

According to reports by Corriere dello Sport, Boban has been recently contacted by Roma. New American owner Dan Friedkin has taken control of the Giallorossi and they want to have a link between the club and the squad.

Who better than Boban, a former player himself but at the same time an expert manager also at an institutional level. Roma would like to focus on his experience, perhaps in tandem with another former icon of AC Milan like Umberto Gandini. Gandini who served at Milan for more than 20 years is also about to return to football after his experience at Federbasket.
