Clarence Seedorf has his sights on Europe after a fifth straight Milan win, but said anyone interested in his future should “ask the club.”
The Rossoneri swept Livorno aside 3-0 at San Siro to catch Parma in joint sixth place and for the first time since December 2011 have won five Serie A rounds on the trot.
“We are in a position that boosts confidence, as we are closer to the top teams and the final few rounds will be decisive,” Coach Seedorf told Sky Sport Italia.
“The side really put in a great performance and had the right approach to this game. We are targeting the Europa League, so first we have Roma and then Inter.
“We had the utmost respect for Livorno today and will do the same at Roma next week.”
Mario Balotelli was on target, but Livorno felt he had pushed his marker to get the necessary space.
“You can stir up controversy if you want, there’s no point saying if it was a foul or not. I want to talk only about the good performance.
“Balotelli is maturing psychologically and this allows him to do better both on and off the field. I hope he continues along this path.”
The last few days have seen speculation over Seedorf’s future with reports Pippo Inzaghi or Fiorentina’s Vincenzo Montella will take over next season.
“I don’t know, you’d have to talk to the club. I can’t speak for others,” shrugged the Dutchman.
“I am focused on bringing home as many points as possible, that is what was asked of me, and try to prepare for next season. Am I perplexed on the club’s failure to make my position clear? You’d have to ask the club that.”
