[Zvonimir Boban on Balotelli] There’s way too much talking about Balotelli. All he has achieved in his life is sitting on the bench at other clubs. He would have been carrying the bags of players such as Marco van Basten, George Weah and Andriy Shevchenko in my days. He does not understand what it means to wear the Milan jersey. Milan will always be bigger than Balotelli. His poor attitude is only further proof that he doesn’t understand the value of playing for Milan. People like Marcel Desailly, Paolo Maldini and Franco Baresi would have slapped him for showing up late

[Zvonimir Boban on Fellaini] Fellaini cannot play football. He seriously cannot play football. It’s unthinkable that Nainggolan doesn’t play instead of him

[Chaos at AC Milan as Boban publicly slams CEO Gazidis for approaching Rangnick behind his back] Until a few days ago, I thought it was true that there were not two souls within Milan, albeit taking into account all the thousand initial difficulties, cultural differences and very different passions for the Rossoneri cause. The fact we’re having to talk about this is not good for anyone. The worst part is that this destabilising event is happening during a moment when the team is improving and you can see Stefano Pioli’s hard work. Not even warning us was disrespectful and inelegant. It was not the Milan style. At least not what we remembered the Milan style as being. The way I see it, unity means sharing, unity means respect. At the end of the day, we need that approach, it is the only way to work and feel good. We’ve already talked to Gazidis. For the good of Milan, it is certainly necessary that a meeting with the ownership happens as soon as possible.

The owners must be clear both in terms of the budget and their objectives. In essence, we must respect the needs of the club to balance the books, while the owners must respect leaving the sporting results to those who represent the history and values of a great club. At this moment, despite the efforts we made in the January transfer window, making many cuts and sales to lower the wage bill, we still don’t know what margins we’ll be working with for the summer. We were asked to lower the average age of the squad and we did that, but always maintaining the need for the right mix between youth and experience. The January transfer window shows we were right, you can see how quickly the younger players improved with more senior figures by their side

[Boban hits out at AC Milan dictatorship] Until a few days ago, I didn’t think it were true that there were two souls within Milan. Not even warning us was disrespectful and inelegant. It was not the Milan style. At least not what we remembered the Milan style as being

[Boban has since been given his books by the power-playing Gazidis and the Croatian has snapped back at his former boss] I wasn’t aware we were in a dictatorship like North Korea. My interview [with Gazzetta] was legally impeccable and it arrived after many questions and demands for in-house clarification went unanswered

[The former Rossoneri midfielder plans to due the club for unfair dismissal, with a three-year contract brought to an end just nine months in] They closed a deal with Rangnick in December. I can wish him all the luck in the world, but they [Gazidis] needed to tell me about this. I deserved to be informed of the initiative
