Boban: 'I'd do it all again for Milan'

Zvonimir Boban assures he’d ‘do it all again’ after his sacking, is genuinely ‘happy’ Milan backed Stefano Pioli and urges ‘force of nature’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic to stay.

Former director Boban was fired five months ago following an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport in which he openly accused CEO Ivan Gazidis of engaging in talks with Ralf Rangnick without informing him or fellow director Paolo Maldini.

Milan stick rather than twist

News of Stefano Pioli’s new contract ended the prospect of a brave new world at Milan. Richard Hall analyses why Ralf Rangnick isn’t coming after all, and who the winners and losers are…

Whether you agree or disagree with Stefano Pioli’s extension as Milan coach until 2022, you would have to say this is a victory for the establishment. Paolo Maldini is also set to stay on and it seems he has certainly used his influence to the full in this political struggle. Whilst time will tell if this is a large dose of short termism or not, the process has been a confused one and it confirms Milan were not willing to take a leap of faith and embark on a new project that could have seen Ralf Rangnick revolutionise the club.

Maldini done at Milan?

Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis wants to offer Paolo Maldini a change of role in Via Aldo Rossi, but the current technical director seems set to reject the proposal.

Tuttosport claims Gazidis looks for a possibility to keep Maldini at Milanello despite the arrival of Ralf Rangnick, who is set to take over at San Siro next term.

The former RB Leizpig coach will step into a managerial role, combining the technical director job with the coaching part.

Report: Rangnick agrees with Milan

Milan have, according to Tuttosport, reached an agreement with former Schalke 04 and RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick.

The Red Bull director has been linked with the Rossoneri and CEO Ivan Gazidis have not hidden the fact that he would like to bring the former RB Leipzig coach to San Siro.

The initial contact with the German manager was the instigator of the controversy leading to Zvonimir Boban’s farewell earlier this year and reports have suggested that technical director Paolo Maldini could have to step back too.

Capello: 'Who knows if Milan are right?'

Former Milan coach Fabio Capello claims ‘many clubs will suffer’ playing in empty stadiums when Serie A resumes and points out the current 'lack of continuity' at the Rossoneri.

Capello brought home four Scudetti during his time with the Diavolo, including the invincible season in 1991-92, and is not sure if his former employer are doing the right thing by planning to start again with only foreigners at the helm.

Ivan the Terrible strikes again

Ralf Rangnick may well be the right man for Milan, but Livio Caferoglu writes Ivan Gazidis has gone in completely the wrong way about hiring him.

Not even a global health emergency could mellow the madness at Milan. Only last summer, Elliott Management backed Zvonimir Boban and Paolo Maldini to return the club to greatness. Less than 12 months on and the pair are about to be consigned to the Rossoneri’s history books for the second time. Instead, a man with no official connections to the red half of San Siro has been allowed to call the shots, seemingly without informing his colleagues at the club.
