Guangzhou Evergrande coach Marcello Lippi has dismissed talk of a crisis at AC Milan.

Lippi believes the problems at Milan have been blown out of proportion, and also revealed how close he once was to taking charge of the Rossoneri.

"It is normal to talk about a crisis in Italy, and starting with two defeats at home isn't the best. However when you renew and lose important players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva its normal to have problems.

"Have Milan ever contacted me? We were close a couple of years ago, but then took other paths."
