There have been plenty of rumors about who will take over as a sporting director now that Leonardo is gone, so why not another name?

Just as the club has dipped back into its history, getting former players such as Leonardo, Paolo Maldini, Gennaro Gattuso, etc, to work at the club, the latest former player to be linked with a return to Casa Milan is Zvonimir Boban, who played for the club from 1991 to 2001. He’s been a pundit or working for FIFA since his retirement from football, so why not. I mean, bringing in a former player without almost any experience in the role that he’s being asked to take? What could possibly go wrong? It’s always worked out in the past, right?

On to the links.
