AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists they want coach Carlo Ancelotti in charge for next season.

After victory over Atalanta yesterday, Galliani said: "For eight years, for better and for worse, we have always worked with Carlo Ancelotti and I hope that we will be together again next year."

On the prospect of overhauling Serie A leaders Inter, he added: "12 points and we have nine injured. I'm not saying that we cannot challenge, but I say that Milan would need to have less injuries to close the gap."
