Massimiliano Allegri: 'I was joking about resignation'

Massimiliano Allegri confirms that his post-PSV Eindhoven comments about considering resigning were a joke.

AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has revealed that his threat of resignation following his side's Champions League qualifying win over PSV Eindhoven was a joke.

Allegri said in the post-match press conference that he would consider leaving his post due to the press claiming that he needed to qualify to save his job, but he has since clarified his comments.

"As usual, someone has failed to take it as a joke," he told reporters. "A lot of people like writing things and so for once I wanted to amuse myself.

"If when I quit coaching I start to say certain things, to pontificate on what other coaches should be doing then you'll be calling me a good guy and coming to visit me.

"Too many people take things too seriously and don't understand jokes."

The club's president Adriano Galliani has also confirmed that his coach was not being serious.
