Alessio Romagnoli: ‘I am happy at Milan’

Though he’s been linked to Juventus and many top Premier League clubs, Milan centre-back Alessio Romagnoli claims he’s perfectly happy to be at Milan.

The Rossoneri captain has become one of the best defenders in Serie A and has pledged his future to the club as long as he remains ecstatic.

“I am happy in Milan. I will remain here as long as I am happy, then we’ll see,” Romagnoli told reporters on Monday night.

“The club has to talk about rumours, not me. I am happy in Milan and I am the captain, so I have many reasons to stay.

“If we don’t qualify for the Champions League, then it’d be another season with the objective of getting into that tournament, like the current campaign.

“However, there’s still a round to go and anything could happen.

“We believe in our chances. We’ll give our all to win against SPAL on Sunday and wait for the other results. We’re aware it no longer depends entirely on us, but we have to try.

“Missing out on the Champions League wouldn’t be a failure, but it would be very disappointing.

“We dropped points in a few too many games where we had the wrong approach and now need to make the final sprint count.”

Milan trail Inter Milan and Atalanta by a single point heading into the last match of the season against SPAL.
