Vincenzo Montella described Milan’s 2-1 triumph over Cagliari as an “important win” and admitted there was never any chance of Suso being sold this summer.
Milan made it two wins from two in Serie A as they overcame a tough Cagliari side thanks to a Suso free-kick.
The Spaniard curled in a wonderful winner with 20 minutes remaining after Joao Pedro’s equaliser had cancelled out Patrick Cutrone’s early opener.
“The team started the game in the best way, taking the lead, then we slowed down. It’s an important win, we hope for more,” Montella began.
“We never thought of putting Suso on the market. He is highly esteemed by the coaching staff and the management.”
Montella also commented on the performance of Riccardo Montolivo and the Curva Sud banner against M’Baye Niang, telling the Frenchman to leave the club.
“Montolivo played an extraordinary game. I see a player who grew much compared to last year.”
“The banner against Niang? I didn’t read it. The audience have the right to express their opinion.”
Andre Silva did not play a single minute in the win, but the Milan boss insisted there is no need for concern.
“There is room for all three strikers. Not all the players can play all the games for 90 minutes.”
