Allegri threatens to quit Milan

Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has suggested he could resign from his position on Thursday, amid uncertainty over his future.

Reports emerging prior to Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League play-off round second-leg clash with PSV suggested that the Italian’s position was under threat should his side fail to progress.

But, after Milan cruised through to group stages courtesy of a 3-0 victory at San Siro, Allegri angrily revealed that he is considering resigning due to the building pressure.

“For a couple of years this has been going on, so maybe I’ll resign tomorrow morning. I’ll think it over tonight,” he is quoted by Sport Mediaset.

“I am a little annoyed tonight, as I read things that have been written and believe people need to be more objective. There is pontificating from the outside.

“I am satisfied with the performance, but very angry tonight. I am very angry, fortunately occasionally we win a game and the lads allow me to have some fun too.

“They are trying to make me angry from the outside, it doesn’t work. From the inside there is a good rapport with the general manager, the players and the club.

“Still some like to write rubbish, so when I read this pontificating about what they’d do – fine, come and take my place on the bench and see if you can get the results I have.

“I say this because every now and then you have to put up some barriers. I hope when my career ends, maybe at the age of 60 if I get there, I will go to Livorno, stay by the sea, go fishing, eat good food, drink good wine. I might watch a few games here and there, but not go around pontificating on what other people are doing.

“I am very happy with what the lads did, as they gave a great night to me, the fans and the President. I also thank the supporters, who stood by us during difficult moments. I don’t want to say anything else about the game. It’s the result that counts.”
