AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti remains confident Rino Gattuso will stay next season.

He said: "We will talk about it at the end of the season. I continue to believe he will remain at Milan at the end of the day. He may have a few worries at the moment, but Gattuso is too important for Milan and is just as crucial as Kaka.

"Nobody puts in the heart and soul that Gattuso does and he is irreplaceable. There is absolutely no way we would let him go."
