Allegri threatens to quit Milan

29 August 2013 00:06

Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has suggested he could resign from his position on Thursday, amid uncertainty over his future.

Reports emerging prior to Wednesday's UEFA Champions League play-off round second-leg clash with PSV suggested that the Italian's position was under threat should his side fail to progress.

But, after Milan cruised through to group stages courtesy of a 3-0 victory at San Siro, Allegri angrily revealed that he is considering resigning due to the building pressure.

"For a couple of years this has been going on, so maybe I’ll resign tomorrow morning. I’ll think it over tonight," he is quoted by Sport Mediaset.

"I am a little annoyed tonight, as I read things that have been written and believe people need to be more objective. There is pontificating from the outside.

"I am satisfied with the performance, but very angry tonight. I am very angry, fortunately occasionally we win a game and the lads allow me to have some fun too.

"They are trying to make me angry from the outside, it doesn’t work. From the inside there is a good rapport with the general manager, the players and the club.

"Still some like to write rubbish, so when I read this pontificating about what they’d do – fine, come and take my place on the bench and see if you can get the results I have.

"I say this because every now and then you have to put up some barriers. I hope when my career ends, maybe at the age of 60 if I get there, I will go to Livorno, stay by the sea, go fishing, eat good food, drink good wine. I might watch a few games here and there, but not go around pontificating on what other people are doing.

"I am very happy with what the lads did, as they gave a great night to me, the fans and the President. I also thank the supporters, who stood by us during difficult moments. I don’t want to say anything else about the game. It’s the result that counts."
