Montella: 'Catania have ambition'

Vincenzo Montella refused to comment on the refereeing decisions in Catania’s draw with Milan. “We have important ambitions.”

The 1-1 result was dominated by controversy over a Rossoneri ‘phantom goal’ and the Elefantini’s effort ruled offside.

“I never comment on refereeing decisions. Everyone can judge things their own way, they have the eyes to see. I made that pledge when I first started doing this line of work,” explained Montella.

“We have important ambitions and want to try to the end, so whether we achieve it or not is irrelevant.

“This was a very entertaining game of football. We started well, then Milan took over, but we were always in it and after the break came out with amazing pace. We could’ve scored a few more goals, while Milan had the chance to win it at the last second.”

Montella has been heavily linked with a move away from Sicily next season, as the likes of Inter, Lazio and Napoli have shown an interest.

“It’s all just gossip for now. At this moment I am focused solely on Catania and it’s only right to give this club and these players credit for what they are doing.

“It’s pleasing to hear that Lazio respect me and my history with Roma is not a barrier. It might be complicated, but then I don’t like to make proclamations, as anything can happen over the years.”
