Boban: 'Milan logic, not fireworks'

Milan director Zvonimir Boban warns “it will take time, with logical choices rather than fireworks, but we will get back to the top. A low profile is not a lack of ambition.”

Former player Boban quit his job with FIFA to join Paolo Maldini and Ivan Gazidis in running the Rossoneri after chaotic spells under Marco Fassone, Massimiliano Mirabelli and Leonardo.

“It’ll take time, with logical choices rather than the pointless fireworks we saw in recent years, but we will get back to the top,” he told the Corriere della Sera newspaper.
