By Football Italian staff It was one of the most exciting moments of Milan’s Europa League play-off victory over Ajax, but it is now time for Giuseppi Rossi to step down.
The forward was a key player in the team’s stunning 3-0 win over Ajax at the Estadio San Paolo, scoring twice and helping them reach the final against second-placed Juventus.
After the game, Rossi spoke to Sky Sport Italia and he confirmed he will leave the club at the end of the season.
“I have no interest in being Milan’s president.
I want to be a good player, a leader and an important player for the club.
I hope I will be able to contribute to the club’s success.”
Rossi is not the only player with an interest in taking up a managerial role at Milan.
Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is currently in talks with former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane about taking over from Louis van Gaal.
The 28-year-old has made it clear that he wants to remain at the San Siro, but the club have a difficult task to fill in the vacancy.
