Vincenzo Montella claimed that AC Milan have full faith in him, despite reports that the club may go through a managerial change after the arrival of new owners.
Milan became the latest Italian giant to fall under the hands of foreign owners after president Silvio Berlusconi decided to sell the club for around £ 700 million. After having gone through years of neglect in terms of investment, Milan are expected to spend big in the upcoming transfer window. Vincenzo Montella has done a reasonably good job since being appointed as the Milan manager back in the summer.
He has been in charge for 39 matches and has managed to take around 1.69 points per game. Milan, though, are in danger of missing out on the Europa league spot after a five match winless run.
This poor run of form has come at the worst possible time for the club, as they were in a great position to snatch the Europa league qualification position from the likes of Atalanta or Lazio. Milan managed a 1-1 draw with Atalanta during the weekend. In recent weeks, they have suffered defeats against Empoli and Roma while drawing games against Inter Milan, Crotone, and Atalanta. Despite this poor run of form, Montella claims that he will remain as the Milan manager going forward.
Montella has a contract with the club until June 2018.“The game was balanced and a struggle, as Atalanta are a force to be reckoned with. They are not a fluke.We’ve had some great performances this season and when we were lacking, we made up for it with team spirit and effort. It’s a fair draw and I am proud of this point. It’s a precious point, because it came against a side that has made everyone suffer this season,” said Montella after the draw with Atalanta.
