AC Milan play down Conte links; back Gattuso in press review

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have played down links with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte by reaffirming their commitment to current coach Gennaro Gattuso.

A report in Monday’s Tuttosport claimed that Gattuso had to reach a cup final and take Milan to sixth in Serie A in order to get full backing.

However, a Press review on the Rossoneri’s official website read: “Milan’s main objective is to keep improving and growing.

“The work that awaits Rino Gattuso is still in its most significant phase, and the objective of the Coach, staff and squad is to combine it with our imminent deadlines on three fronts.

“Certainly, there’s great appreciation from the club for the amount of work that Rino Gattuso does every day, both on and off the pitch, and also for his footballing ideas.”
