Philippe Mexes insists “it hurts to read reports I want to leave Milan or had a fight with the Coach, as none of it is true.”
The defender is one of several players who could be sold over the summer and was recently rumoured to have joined Clarence Seedorf in a locker room argument with Massimiliano Allegri.
“It hurts to read reports I want to leave Milan or had a fight with the Coach, as none of it is true,” he told Milan Channel.
“After the knee injury it was not easy to get back on to the field, but now I want to get back to my usual levels.”
The Rossoneri are one point shy of Serie A leaders Juventus going into Sunday night’s derby with Inter.
“We did not expect to face the derby with only a one-point gap from Juve, as we didn’t see their draw with Lecce coming. Now we must believe to the end.
“We must win our remaining two games and hope for another slip-up from the Bianconeri. Thankfully the injury list is shrinking now and everyone will give their all.”
