Honda: ‘Milan situation ugly’

Keisuke Honda has again blasted Milan, saying ‘the situation is ugly’ and that ‘the team has been in perennial trouble for two and a half years.’

The Japan international spoke out about an ‘uneasy situation’ at the club in November and has again been critical, this time of the continuous sacking of Coaches.

The attacking midfielder has been linked with a move away from San Siro for some time, but praised the club’s appeal: “Few other clubs in the world have it.”

“Milan were going through a difficult period at the time of my arrival, and I knew what I was going to face,” Honda explained to Kyodo News.

“Allegri wanted me, but since then the situation has become even uglier.

“I arrived at Milan in the hope of being able to give my contribution to change things, but since then the club has continued to keep changing Coach with the result that the team has been in perennial trouble for two and a half years.

"Milan could be great again, they have the appeal of few other clubs in the world, but a single purchase isn’t enough to solve problems.

“Kaka, Robinho, Torres and Balotelli all came, then who else?"
