Ancelotti bullish over future at San Siro
AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti is confident his side will meet their target and finish third in Serie A this season as he prepares for Sunday's home clash with Atalanta.
Ancelotti was told this week that his position could be under threat if the Rossoneri fail to hold onto their current position of third.
"Regarding my future, it's clear that if Milan failed to meet its aim of third place, changes could take place, including for me," said Ancelotti on the club's official website.
"But I am convinced that we will finish third and therefore there will be no problem."
Ancelotti held on to his job at the end of last season despite the club's failure to achieve the fourth-place finish that was needed to qualify for the Champions League.
But the Rossoneri tactician, who is the longest-serving manager in Serie A, has been under pressure following defeats which have dropped Milan to 12 points behind leaders and three-time defending champions Inter Milan.
"It's true we are struggling at this time," admitted Ancelotti. "We have many players out injured and we are not 100%."
Ancelotti will be desperate to welcome back Brazil playmaker Kaka from a foot injury for Sunday's visit of Atalanta.
