Allegri: Focus on third

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri has refused to comment on his future, insisting that all his focus is on claiming third place for the Rossoneri.

The San Siro side currently sit in the last remaining Champions League spot, and go to Pescara on Wednesday looking for the three points that could take them seven points clear of Fiorentina.

And the Coach has insisted that the match at Stadio Adriatico is all that's on his mind.

“At this time the games are easy to prepare for,” he told a Press conference. “We have a motivation that goes beyond the opponent.

“Tomorrow's game will be difficult though. Pescara went to Rome recently and did well.

“We have to pay attention to their qualities. But we are a team that needs to win.

“It is important that we get three points tomorrow because it would allow us to go into upcoming games with a greater peace of mind.

“I am at peace because I do not want to speak any more about my future.

“It has become an issue and that just doesn't make sense.

“We are all focused on third place. It is not respectful to talk about my future at this time of the season.

“We'll talk about it over the summer – first with the board...and then maybe with the journalists!”
