Ignazio Abate says no-one at AC Milan are giving up on the title.

The Rossoneri are now three points behind Juventus with five games left this season, but the Italian international is refusing to admit defeat.

"We have to recharge our mental batteries," the former Torino player told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We must believe that we can still win the championship because history shows us that titles can be claimed on the last day of the season."
