Adriano Galliani studiously avoided answering a direct question on whether Clarence Seedorf will be Milan Coach next season.
The rumours of the Dutchman’s imminent exit have been circulating for weeks, even though he only replaced Massimiliano Allegri in January.
Galliani was on Sky Sport Italia ahead of tonight’s Derby della Madonnina and was asked outright if Seedorf will be the Coach of Milan next season.
“Now we are very focused on the end of the campaign. As Seedorf said yesterday, he has two years on his contract.”
It wasn’t exactly an endorsement, but the CEO was very eager to point out Milan’s past success.
“I want to compliment Juventus on their third consecutive Scudetto, however, I keep hearing people say all three were dominated by the Bianconeri.
“I’d like to remind people that two years ago Milan were top of the table until April, so it was hardly dominated by Juventus.”
The Rossoneri have fallen on hard times, as they must beat Inter tonight to have any hope of qualifying for the Europa League.
“This isn’t the same objective as when we played the derby in the Champions League semi-final, but it is still a target to be chased,” added Galliani.
“It has been a tough season, but I remember last year Roma finished seventh and Inter ninth.”
