Italy coach Donadoni reveals talks with AC Milan's upset Inzaghi

Italy coach Roberto Donadoni believes he's cleared the air with AC Milan striker Pippo Inzaghi after ignoring the veteran for his Euro2008 squad.

"I respect him and he must respect me," the Azzurri boss explained.

"He has an enthusiasm that belies his years and that's how he lives his football - it's a strength.

"But what happened between us stays between us and the discussion is closed.

"I never said that he wasn't on form because that would have been stupid on my part given his recent performances, but I have no reason to apologise for my choices."
