AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists there's no rift between coach Carlo Ancelotti and president Silvio Berlusconi.

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists there's no rift between coach Carlo Ancelotti and president Silvio Berlusconi.

There has been talk of crisis after Berlusconi's harsh criticism of Ancelotti this week, but Galliani says: "We will know everything after we qualify for the Champions League. There is a very good relationship with Ancelotti, he is not at all disturbed by the words of Berlusconi.

"I've heard too many urban legends in these hours, Carlo Ancelotti is clear and well, no problem. I repeat that there will be no meetings between him and Mr Berlusconi, who at this moment is only holding the post of Council president.

"For the famous conflict of interest claims, he is no longer the president of Milan and has no strength left to deal with certain issues like these."
