Boban told Radio Anch’io Sport:
I hope they can start a new cycle and that within 3-4 years, we’ll see Milan again in all their greatness, but we need a lot of work. I wish them well.
Leonardo and Maldini have started working very well, they’ve put everything into their roles and they know football. Good results will come, it takes time.
