AC Milan keeper Amelia takes aim at Genoa coach Gasperini

New AC Milan goalkeeper Marco Amelia insists they're capable of mounting a successful title challenge.

Milan fans have been protesting against the lack of cash spent on signings this summer.Genoa No1 Amelia maintains: "Our cousins Inter won everything last year. We'll try to unstitch the Scudetto from their jersey and attach it to ours."

Amelia also revealed that he left Genoa partly because of differences with Gian Piero Gasperini.

"I accepted his decisions even if I didn't share them. I didn't speak a lot with him or with many of the others," he continued.

"He is a very strange kind of guy. I never understood his decisions and I wasn't the only one.

"I didn't speak with him during the season and today I am not interested in doing so any longer.

"When he spoke about technical decisions, everyone asked him questions. Someone said that there was a behavioural problem and this bothered me the most also because if there was a problem of this nature, the club would have intervened.

"I was surprised to get Milan's call because I was certain that I would be staying at Genoa and I wanted to have another positive year and show everyone my worth.

"Then Buffon got injured and there was a market for goalkeepers. When Milan called me I thought it meant I had done something good."
