I like listening to suggestions, such as Berlusconi's suggestion. But i do not really like his advice in the past season." Montella said.

Although highlighted for the inconsistent performance of the Rossoneri, Montella is still supported by the club. "Support from online sport betting management? I'm glad they support me, but (support) personally is enough," Montella direct. AC Milan confirmed his support for Vincenzo Montella.
