AC Milan head coach Gennaro Gattuso still believes his team can qualify for next season’s Champions League.
11th placed Milan have won one of their five Serie A matches since Gattuso took over from Vincenzo Montella, leaving them 14 points adrift of fourth-placed Roma and Champions League qualification but just 10 above the bottom three.
“Our league position is not good, but we’re in the Coppa Italia semi-finals and the last 32 of the Europa League,” Gattuso said at Friday’s news conference.
“We need to get the best out of those matches, without neglecting the league where there’s a long way to go.
“And until the mathematics condemns us, we must even believe in the Champions League.”
