Zvonimir Boban, former player and director of the Rossoneri club had to leave the red and black due to an issue related to hiring tactician Ralf Rangnick before settling on renewing Pioli’s deal.
The former director spoke in a recent interview and said that he is not a dispute with Milan but in a legal fight with Elliott Management Corporation instead. Elliott then had to respond and actually declared that Boban has an ongoing legal case against AC Milan and not Elliott itself.
Now, the latest update is that Boban will have to return part of the compensation to Milan, after the lawsuit following the dismissal of the Croatian manager by the Rossoneri club.
In fact, back in December 2020, the Labor Judge of the Court of Milan had in fact accepted Boban’s appeal on the dismissal, condemning Milan to pay € 5,375,000.00 net, in addition to expenses equal to” € 843.00 as a unified contribution and € 51.450.00 for attorney’s fees, as well as legal accessories.
Milan, filed an appeal against the sentence of the Labor Judge of the Court of Milan, and yesterday, as reported by Calcio e Finanza, a sentence partially in favour of Milan has been announced: the Court of Appeal of Milan has reformed the first instance sentence for the labor lawsuit initiated by the ex Rossonero director.
The judges, in particular, rejected the Croatian’s request relating to the non-pecuniary damage originally recognized, which will therefore have to return an amount equal to approximately 1.2 million euros to the club (which was already paid in the sum provided for by the previous sentence), as relayed by Calciomercato.com.
