‘Antonelli won’t leave Milan’

Luca Antonelli’s agent insists the defender won’t leave Milan this summer - “he wants to redeem himself”.

The left-back made just seven Serie A appearances last season due to a series of muscular injuries, and he’s determined to do better this time around.

“I think Luca answered this question clearly yesterday,” Gianni Vitali told MilanNews.

“It’s normal that a player like Antonelli attracts the attention of several clubs, but Luca’s intentions are clear, he’s said he loves Milan and wants to stay.

“Luca would never leave Milan with the season he just had, because he has an urge for an incredible redemption and he wants to play, also because this season leads into the World Cup.

“I don’t want to be presumptuous but in that role I don’t see players superior to him in terms of performance, reliability, experience and ability.

“So he wants to play his cards 250 per cent.”
