Montella happy at Milan, planning for next season

AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella insists he has already started planning for next season and has shrugged off the rumours linking him with Roma.

Reports have linked Montella with Luciano Spalletti's job at the Giallorossi next season, but he has revealed that he is happy at the Rossoneri.

"I have read some rumours in recent days. At this point there is great harmony, we are already planning the future. With [Massimiliano] Mirabelli I have a daily relationship. But now we have to think about the present and the game on Sunday," Montella told a press conference, according to Football Italia.

"I feel the esteem of the club, which they have made clear both to me and publicly. I am happy to coach Milan, the rumours do not bother me. Milan must always play to win and this thing excites me a lot. I'm very happy to be here."

Milan are sixth in the Serie A standings after the 4-1 defeat to second-placed Roma and will next face fifth-placed Atalanta who are six points above them.
