Giampaolo: I'll never resign!

Marco Giampaolo admits he was an Inter fan growing up but insists “I’m not a Trojan horse” and that he will ‘never’ leave Milan of his own volition.

Giampaolo is under huge pressure going into Milan’s match against Genoa on Saturday, the former Sampdoria boss having overseen four defeats in his first six games at the helm.

“We’re working to do better. We were already working at 8 this morning,” he told satirical TV programme Le Iene.

“You say I work a lot but work badly? We’ll find the solution. Resigning? Never! Leaving means giving up and we never give up.”

“I said I supported Inter until I was 10, but I’m not a Trojan horse. We’re not budgeting for a bad result against Genoa.

“We’re working to eat the panettone. Our objectives are always at the maximum, we always think about doing our best.

“Milan are above individual interests.”

Krzysztof Piatek scored 30 goals for Genoa and the Rososneri last season but has managed just two after six games this time around...

“Those who know how to score don’t forget how to do so. It happens, there are always runs and bad patches.”
