Giovanni Stroppa is shocked by his sacking as AC Milan youth coach.
Milan announced his departure last week.
"I wasn't the one to leave this job, but the club dropped me without warning and they didn't give me a reason," Stroppa told Milannews.
"I never had any sensation that things could go this way, as I am certain I did a good job, gave the side a precise identity and improved their performances from the previous campaign.
"Don't ask me why I was treated this way, because I haven't a clue. You'd need to ask the club."
