Galliani: 'Milan asked Conte'

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani admits “we offered Antonio Conte the bench, but he preferred Italy. In future, who knows…”

The proposal had long been the subject of rumour and reared its head again with Sinisa Mihajlovic hanging by a thread.

“It’s true, we offered Conte the Milan bench a while back, but he preferred Italy,” Galliani told Rai Sport.

“He is now the Italy Coach. In future? Who knows…”

It’s reported Marcello Lippi will be brought in if Mihajlovic fails to beat Carpi in tonight’s Coppa Italia quarter-final.
