Vincenzo Montella renews with Milan until 2019

Milan, Italy – Vincenzo Montella has renewed his contract Milan until 2019. Milan CEO Marco Fassone and sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli made the announcement through Facebook Live with Montella.

Despite speculations, the new Rossoneri owners made it a priority to renew their manager for the next couple of seasons. The former Catania, Roma and Fiorentina coach joined Milan at the start of the season. Montella guided Milan to the qualifying rounds of next season’s Europa League, ending a three-year absence from European football.

“I’m delighted to continue as Milan coach,” Montella said on the club’s official website. “I reaffirm my enthusiasm for this adventure and thank you for the faith shown in me.”

Montella says Milan can now “aim for more glorious objectives that are more in line with the history of this club.”

“There’s common pride and great motivation. We want to start soon and try to get into the Champions League.

“I’m excited by this project, it contains difficult but important ambitions. I need this kind of stimulus to get the best from myself.

“Even though I’m on holiday, my head will be on the first day of preseason.”

In addition to finishing sixth in Serie A, Milan beat Juventus to win the Italian Supercoppa in December.
