Mathieu Flamini launched a broadside at Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri. “I am fit, so if I don’t play it’s because the Coach hasn’t picked me.”
The former Arsenal star was out for six months after snapping his cruciate knee ligament in August, but rarely features.
“I am fit, so if I don’t play it’s because the Coach hasn’t picked me,” Flamini told the Corriere della Sera.
“I’ve been training regularly with my teammates for a month and there is no fitness problem. I want people to know I am not wrecked.
“I accept it if the Coach decides not to use me, but I repeat, I am not playing and I don’t know why. Has Allegri explained things to me? No, I don’t like talking.”
