AC Milan coach Vincenzo Montella has announced he's axed fitness chief Emanuele Mara.
Montella announced the decision on Twitter.
“After careful consideration, I've made my decisions and I consider physical preparation to be among the areas where improvements can be made," he wrote.
“I have decided to start a new physical preparation plan, for which I haven't found full agreement with my assistant, the athletic trainer Emanuele Marra.
“It is with heavy heart that together with Emanuele, we have decided to part ways. I take this opportunity to thank him for the work done together over these years."
