Milan released an official statement in reaction to the press claims.
“Rino Gattuso never had the slightest thought of resigning," the Diavolo insisted on their official website.
“As early as yesterday afternoon it was not only perceived but understood that these social media rumours were completely false.
“Milan must fight and must recover as soon as possible. Yesterday at Casa Milan, the club and the Coach worked hard to plan the work during the days of ritiro, and analysed useful ways to get out of this difficult period.
“All components of the club are fired-up and committed on that front, to ensure that the shared choice of a ritiro is experienced in a useful, mature and constructive way."
