AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani refused to take questions about his future yesterday.

Galliani is under pressure over a dismal campaign so far and there are reports of fellow director Barbara Berlusconi demanding he step down.

"I'll look forward and keep this club calm. I've never spoken about boardroom issues publicly. I will gladly respond to football questions..."

Galliani was praised by Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti yesterday.

He responded: "Real Madrid are all our friends. This morning I spoke at length with Florentino Perez. My experience teaches me not to get down and not let things mess with my head."
