Exactly one month after his sacking from AC Milan, former coach Vincenzo Montella immediately found a new team. Once the contract with the Rossoneri was resolved, he signed for Sevilla and for the first time in his career will try a new adventure in Spain.
The Spanish club made his official presentation before the press and fans last Saturday. This morning, however, he held his first press conference on the eve of the Copa del Rey derby against Betis Sevilla. Montella spoke about his first sensations, some transfer market issues and the next opponents. But he also had the chance to talk about his former club. And not really in positive terms.
The former Rossoneri coach, as reported by AS, slammed AC Milan by making a comparison with his new club Sevilla: “Milan is a great club and in 30 years has won many titles, but in the last five they have not won anything. Sevilla has won more than the Rossoneri in the last ten years, plays in Europe every year and is a great club”.
On June 2016, Milan announced Montella as their new head coach while paying Sampdoria €500,000 as a compensation to release him from his contract. Although he, on May, signed a new contract which would have kept him at the club until 2019 he was sacked last November after a goalless draw with Torino. During his time at the helm of the Rossoneri he won the Italian Super Cup.
