Galliani: I'm no psychologist

Adriano Galliani insists all is well in the Milan camp despite the recent declarations of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Antonio Cassano.

Ibra raised some doubts over his long term future last week by suggesting he was getting tired of the game, while Cassano last night revealed that he plans to retire in three years.

"I don't know what's happening to Ibrahimovic and Cassano," said the Rossoneri Vice-President on Wednesday. "I'm not a psychologist.

"However, I talk to the players and everything is going very well. There is nothing to be worried about.

"Ibrahimovic was desperate to come back to us after international duty, despite what some people were suggesting."

The reigning champions have had a tough start to the season after picking up just five points from five games amidst an injury crisis.

"We knew that we would have some complications," he added. "The early date for the Super Cup Final [August 6] caused us some problems.

"Alexandre Pato? He's doing better, but he won't be ready for Saturday. However, he's on the mend."
