Marcello Lippi admits he held talks with AC Milan

Former Juventus coach Marcello Lippi admits he held talks with AC Milan last season.

Lippi was linked with the Milan job before Sinisa Mihajlovic's dismissal.

"Me in the place of Mihajlovic? It's all true," he told Corriere Fiorentina.

“The contact was so true that I'd already met my staff at my house, telling them to be ready.

“Then Milan won 2-0 at Fiorentina in the first game of the second round and began a run of positive results, and everything dried up.

“Galliani tried to take me to Milan on three or four occasions and I always said 'no', but this time I gave my approval."
