AC Milan striker Niang snaps back at Montella

AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang has snapped back at coach Vincenzo Montella.

Niang was signed off from training for 10 days with a medical certificate due to 'stress' and Montella lightly mocked him in today's Press conference.

“I listened to Montella's words in the Press conference. I just want to say that football has always been the love of my life and it is my profession," Niang told MilanNews.it.

“I always trained with a smile on my face, I've been at Milan for five years and all my teammates can testify to that.

“The stress is not tied to a technical situation, but what is happening off the field, the way that things are being dealt with.

“I just want to choose where I go, not anyone else. I have nothing against Milan and the club, I just want to explain the situation."
