Boban slams current AC Milan

AC Milan hero Zvonimir Boban has slammed the current team after their poor domestic campaign so far.

Milan have pinned their hopes on Brazilian signing Alexandre Pato, who is available in January, to turn things around, but Boban is not convinced.

"I strongly doubt that Pato will be enough to jumpstart the Milan engine," he told La Stampa. "If the Rossoneri want to compete on all fronts they need one really big signing."

Boban believes that the priorities at the club have changed since he won four Scudetti at the San Siro between 1992 and 2001.

"Milan have changed their philosophy and now they put the Champions League first and let everything else follow," he stressed. "As Europe seems to matter more than everything else, the side are unwittingly snubbing the League."

The Croatian ex-midfielder concluded by casting a critical eye over the men at Carlo Ancelotti's disposal.

"It's a different squad now because you can't ask the old guard to keep working miracles," he warned.

"Ancelotti doesn't have the strikers who can turn a game, let alone a season, like Jon Dahl Tomasson or Daniele Massaro used to.

"Inter have Julio Cruz, Juventus have Vincenzo Iaquinta and Roma Mirko Vucinic, but Milan have nobody."
