Cesare Prandelli has called for calm on drawing assessments on Milan’s season and laughed off Luciano Spalletti’s links to the Rossoneri.
The sacked Zenit St Petersburg Coach has in some quarters of the media been paired with possibly replacing Clarence Seedorf at San Siro in the summer.
But, according to Italy Coach Prandelli, to assess Milan’s season based on their recent disappointing exit to Atletico Madrid and League defeat to Udinese is not wise.
“Milan is not a disaster, there are too many expectations being placed on a team that is changing, that is finding a new structure to reorganise for the future,” Prandelli has told Rai Sport this week.
“I do not look at the results, but at the quality of person and in Seedorf there are many ideas.
“Spalletti to Milan? He does not need anyone’s backing, he has great ability.
“It makes me smile, because 10 days ago Seedorf was the saviour of his club but now there are rumours about Spalletti. But, Italian football can get weary.”
