Filippo Inzaghi has hit out at media reports of a bust-up between himself and members of his Milan squad.
Milan’s poor season suffered a new low point in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Udinese, which led to an apology from head coach Inzaghi.
Worse was to follow for Milan’s suffering supporters as reports in the Italian media suggested an argument had taken place between Inzaghi and his squad in the aftermath of the defeat.
Midfielder Nigel de Jong was said to be one of the players involved in the spat, although the Dutchman took to Twitter to write: “Press is the press for a reason. Always looking for a hype.
Don’t assume the first thing you are reading is the truth.
“You can have an argument as adults, but always with respect. If there is one who knows the value of this shirt it is our coach. As that being said let’s move on to what’s important. Leaving this issue for what it is and do the talking on the pitch together.”
