Vincenzo Montella quotes

Aug 24 2017

Cutrone can be on the bench a few times. I had to sit on the bench, so he can too!feedback

Aug 17 2017

I am very happy with the way this team is developing. We are only at the beginning, but it's a promising start. It's also gratifying to see the visceral enthusiasm of the fans in the stadium. It gives us an extra boost.feedback

Aug 17 2017

Naturally the game immediately got on the right track and was perhaps better than we expected, so we had some dips in concentration that we ought to avoid in future. In general, it was a very positive evening. We won't take the second leg for granted, as every game is an opportunity to improve.feedback

Aug 17 2017

The only negative of the evening was Jack Bonaventura's injury, but we hope it's nothing serious. He had a twinge in his thigh.feedback

Aug 17 2017

There are players who need to integrate and let's not forget Serie A is more tactical and therefore more difficult than many other leagues. It'll be a real battle against Crotone on Sunday.feedback

Jul 29 2017

We have some certainties and some players who can grow over time.feedback

Jul 29 2017

If we were to miss out on that target, it would certainly be a very damaging blow both economically and in terms of image. However, there is a great deal of competition in Italy and there are teams who, even if they haven't had our summer transfer strategy, are still slightly ahead of us in terms of planning. Bonucci is a candidate alongside Lucas Biglia. I am taking time over it, because I think the choice must be shared with the club, the coach and the squad.feedback

Jul 29 2017 - Champions League

If we were to miss out on that target, it would certainly be a very damaging blow both economically and in terms of image.feedback

Jul 29 2017

The fans must also feel they are represented in this decision.feedback

Jul 29 2017

I am taking time over it, because I think the choice must be shared with the club, the coach and the squad.feedback

Jul 24 2017

Niang against Bayern made a brilliant match.feedback

Jul 24 2017

Bonucci is a highly-competitive professional, he will be an example for young players. I do not know if without him Juve has been weakened, but we certainly have strengthened ourselves.feedback

Jul 21 2017

For Milan, we try to choose the most suitable players. And in those we are interested, we evaluate their capacity and value in order for us to have the best players.feedback

Jul 20 2017

Coaching him is a dream come true.feedback

Jul 18 2017

We cannot look at the result. I saw a team with application and character. There are things we need to work on, but the spirit is always the same. It was a great signing by the club and we're happy to have him with us. I'd be happy to arrive at 70 per cent. I hope those who have arrived will be as prepared as us, or even more so.feedback

Jul 18 2017

He's one of us now in every respect.feedback

Jul 13 2017

It's been a soap opera but the final outcome is the most important thing. Gigio is like a son.feedback

Jun 26 2017

The lad is reflecting on things with his entourage and it's right for him to reflect.feedback

Jun 26 2017

He deserves to be waited for, and we hope he'll decide on Milan. We're waiting, goalkeeper is an important role and we hope he'll pick Milan.feedback

Jun 22 2017

Maybe only Leo Messi is quicker than Salah with the ball at his feet.feedback

May 29 2017

To reach the Champions League we will have to raise the bar and add to the squad to challenge the best mentally and physically in all competitions. Without his knowledge, I made him put his autograph on a white sheet, so I have it in my hands. Everyone has their own dreams, he is happy in Milan and his efficiency has not changed despite the rumours. He will make the best choice.feedback

May 29 2017 - Champions League

We are a club that also likes great players, even though we will not compete in the Champions League next season.feedback

May 28 2017

We are considering the potential departing players and who could arrive at Milan. We had a zero cost transfer market, we didn't spend any money in January. Now the market operations will be done. The ownership have great ideas and great will to construct a better team.feedback

May 28 2017

Apart from today, it has been a very positive season. We have given many players a better value. We have returned to Europe and lifted a trophy, so it was a positive season.feedback

May 28 2017

Let's leave him alone, sometimes we are forced to make mistakes. These things happen. I won't comment on Raiola's words. Everyone does his own job, he is not the one to whom I need to explain my words. I am calm. I trust the management and I don't have anxiety. I'll give my technical assessments, I am in constant contacts with [sporting director Massimiliano] Mirabelli, we have a great relationship.feedback

May 27 2017

We have already spoken and we agree on lots of things. I don't feel threatened by him; he can be an added value for our youngsters.feedback

May 06 2017

De Sciglio is much admired by the technical staff and the club. He went through a tough time and is very sensitive and professional.feedback

Apr 29 2017

The club told us to focus on the end of the season, because it's essential that we get into Europe. Too often, agents and reporters try to create stories. I don't prefer Alvaro Morata to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, nor Karim Benzema to Edinson Cavani, or whatever other name. That's not what I am interested in right now. We have to continue working with and improving the current squad. So please, stop sending 'messages' to the players and to me, because our minds are on the present.feedback

Apr 22 2017

The euphoria of the derby against Inter is in the past now and our minds are on Empoli – we have to keep focused throughout the game.feedback

Apr 22 2017

Riccardo Montolivo could be in the squad for Empoli, unlike Andrea Bertolacci, who should be back in the group next week. Empoli are a very well-organised team. The win in the derby with Fiorentina was a great morale booster for them. I grew up in Empoli and have many friends there. That is where I became a player, so naturally there is a very close bond. The next two matches are really important for us. We have to play with enthusiasm, dedication and determination.feedback

Apr 15 2017

I saw 30 minutes of the first half where the team played an excellent game. We could have moved the ball more quickly and been more clinical.feedback

Apr 15 2017

I want to go into Europe, regardless of what Inter do.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Forward Italy

This is an epochal day for Milan. I would like to thank Berlusconi and (vice president Adriano) Galliani for having given me the opportunity to coach a club as glorious as the Rossoneri. In the next few days I will meet the new management and together we will find the solutions to make Milan as successful as it was in the past.feedback

Apr 11 2017

I have really fond memories of Ancelotti. He was the first manager I followed when he was at Chelsea and I was starting my career as coach.feedback

Apr 11 2017

Gigio is changing the way of being a goalkeeper. His shirt, for instance, is one of the most sold, and this is really something rare for a goalkeeper.feedback

Apr 08 2017

With the club changing ownership, I'll have to meet the new management to talk about the future projects and discuss everything. I am not aware of their projects, let's wait and see. Rumours are part of our job: I am really happy at AC Milan and I hope to manage this team also in the future, I really like it here. Let's see what will happen next week, I am serene as always and I'm only focusing on preparing the team for the match against Palermo. #MilanPalermo won't be easy but it's a match within our reach. We won't find lots of space and have to be patient.feedback

Apr 08 2017

[Gabriel] Paletta is playing one of his best seasons ever: ups and downs can happen, but he has been an essential player for us. [Mario] Pasalic? He's what you call a modern player, he's got spirit of self-sacrifice and great desire. [Gerard] Deulofeu is doing really well, you could say he's doing great if he was more clinical in front of goal.feedback

Apr 08 2017

Gigio immediately reacted to his first real mistake. He accepted what happened. He's going to be an even better goalkeeper. Bacca and Lapadula together up front? Sometimes they have already played together and did well. Last week I replaced Carlos because he looked very tired.feedback

Apr 08 2017

[Suso] is very important for us. He had great chemistry with [Ignazio] Abate. When you are missing players like him it's not easy and it's not easy replacing him. Now he's fully recovered although he won't be at the peak of his condition. If everything goes smoothly, he'll play against Palermo.feedback

Apr 02 2017

We got stretched out, Pescara did well. It's a draw that we accept and we look to the next games with optimism.feedback

Apr 02 2017

Mistakes can happen. Gigio needs to relax. If we had won the game, we would have had a laugh about it. There was a misunderstanding, Paletta was being pressed and Donnarumma was in the right position, he just got the first touch wrong. The race for Europe is not over, but I hope that those above us in the table think it is. I am convinced we'll be in it to the very end. We lost one set, to use a tennis term, but there are others still to be played.feedback

Apr 02 2017

Towards the end we created three or four important chances and we didn't make the most of them. Today pride was not enough, we just needed to move the ball around quicker.feedback

Mar 19 2017

I am convinced that we can still reach Europe if we keep performing like this. We put in a good performance. There was not a lot of space and we had to be patient. We got at least three or four great chances to score in the first half. It was a bit more complicated after the break, but that is normal.feedback

Mar 19 2017

There are no easy games, we only have to focus on our own path. We are already thinking about the next game.feedback

Mar 19 2017

These are three very important points.feedback

Mar 17 2017

This year there is more quality. I don't know how many points we need to make it into Europe, probably around 70. The more teams are involved in the race for Europe the better, but we have to focus only on ourselves. Our opponents are really pushing hard on the accelerator, but I am sure that if we play at our best we will reach our goal. I saw all AC Milan's personality in this team, I am disappointed with what happened. I do not like to talk about our absences, but this team has many and on Friday some players were missed.feedback

Mar 17 2017 - Qatar

We could not repeat the victory in Doha, but we have shown we are not afraid. Too bad for what happened at the end, but we have proved once again to have a soul. I don't feel penalised and the team must not feel like victims – we must focus on our next matches and our objective, the Europa League. The match against Juve is in the past, we are now focusing on this game and we need to prepare it well. Genoa have got nothing to lose and will play to win the game. Then next week we will have the international break.feedback

Mar 11 2017

It gives us pride because we put them in trouble and we were almost on par.feedback

Mar 11 2017

The complaints are useless. You have to be calm and serene and accept the decisions. We have to send a peaceful message to those who look at us from home. If we stay this compact, for sure we will enter Europe. We played a good game against an opponent that has power all over the field.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I prefer not to talk about referees, even if on days like this it becomes difficult! Massa told me he took the responsibility of giving the penalty but I am told he was far away and couldn't have seen it.feedback

Mar 09 2017

A professional doesn't rule out anything at the start of their career, so why not? When I was 17 there was talk of interest from Juventus, I was young and promising. Then I got injured and the interest was never firmed up. Maybe coaching Lazio would be more complicated given that in Rome I have a house in the other part of the city! I would have no difficulty doing that, I think it enriches you. Certain leagues and certain cities I like more than others – London for example. The best coach I had was Luciano Spalletti, he could have played me more, but he did open my mind.feedback

Mar 09 2017

Coaching Juventus? Why not?feedback

Mar 09 2017

Will I stay at Milan for a long time? I would like to. The important thing is to have the opportunity to grow together, I want to help the team improve and win again. Everything depends on sharing objectives and being able to renew. It is not a question of staying for a year, three… 10 or even of opening or closing a cycle. That is all theory, if you have a common purpose you can start from the same place. I had a contract with Fiorentina, my family and I were happy, but I felt it was time to stop.feedback

Mar 04 2017

I have not looked at the standings. It's nice to win before the others play. It will be a very sweet Sunday seeing how they do.feedback

Feb 04 2017

He's doing very well. His contract does not depend on me. I believe that, in the evaluation of a decision, it's not only the financial issue but also the expectations of the club and the player. It depends on what the market is saying, the type of football you want to play. It's very complex. I'm delighted for what he did for his country. I hope he can grow even more. We're happy that he is showing off his qualities.feedback

Feb 04 2017

Suso could train with the team next week but we don't want to put pressure on him. It'll take a few more weeks for Montolivo because he was inactive for so long.feedback

Feb 04 2017

When we have thought that a game was easy on paper, we've tended to get poor results, such as against Udinese and Sampdoria. When we had a more difficult fixture, we've actually done better. We've got Gustavo Gomez back and he was able to take part in the full training session. I have to assess players who crossed the ocean for international duty, like Keisuke Honda, Carlos Bacca and Cristian Zapata.feedback
