AC Milan boss Ancelotti hits back at Mourinho taunts

After their 0-0 draw with Napoli, AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti hit back at taunts from Inter counterpart Jose Mourinho. The Special One said: "Every day I prepare my line-up and if someone else came and told me what players to pick, I would pack my bags the next day."

The implication was that President Silvio Berlusconi 'dictates' the squad to his tactician, as the patron has often criticised Ancelotti in public.

"You'd have to ask him who he was referring to," smiled Ancelotti. "If he meant me, then I can only say with Berlusconi as Coach I won two Champions League trophies as a player and two as his assistant manager…

"I have always been in sync with the club and we work together. I think this team has gone through good and bad times precisely because we work that way."
