Milan goalkeeper Marco Amelia has denied reports of a dressing room bust up at San Siro, insisting he and his teammates remain united behind Clarence Seedorf.
The 31-year-old said that if anything, the Rossoneri’s recent woes and subsequent criticism have brought the players even closer together.
“We are in crisis, we are not getting results and Milan are used to going for other objectives than this,” Amelia told MilanNews.it.
“We need to think about the ways in which we can come out if this and rediscover the philosophy that Milan are used to.
“We know that to do that we have to be giving a little bit more.
“We tried to do it against Parma after going out of the Champions League.
“In the first minutes we got ourselves into difficulty but we reacted well despite the fact we eventually lost.
“We are trying to do what Seedorf asks us to do to the best of our ability.
“We are not there to criticise the work of Clarence who everyone knows is a professional.
“What has been written in the newspapers doesn’t interest us.
“We in the dressing room are united and I need to underline that.
“Otherwise, if it were true, you would see news coming out about bust ups.
“In Milanello, we have a feeling of being even more united, all the more because we are in a moment of difficulty.
“We are united and determined to get out of this situation.
“That is the right spirit to get out of this and that is what has been happening these last few days.”
