Boban leaves FIFA post to join AC Milan
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 14 - 06 - 2019

Zvonimir Boban is to leave his position with FIFA to rejoin former club AC Milan as chief football officer, the global governing body said Friday, according to dpa.
The 50-year-old Croatian Boban has acted as FIFA's deputy secretary general for football since 2016, working on tasks such as the reformed Club World Cup, the bidding process for the 2026 World Cup and the introduction of the video assistant referees.
"I feel really honoured and privileged to have worked on such important projects to take FIFA back to its rightful place, far away from past scandals and a tarnished image," Boban said.
"Looking back, I feel a real sense of accomplishment about my contribution to these big changes over the last three years."
Boban played for Milan 1991-2001, winning the Champions League in 1994, in addition to four Serie A titles.
However, Milan have struggled in recent years by regularly falling short of the Champions League places.
