Montella was named Sevilla coach last week after being sacked by the Rossoneri.
“Milan is a huge club," Montella noted in his pre-match Press conference.
“In the last 30 years they've won a lot of trophies, but in the past five they've won few. Sevilla, in the last 10 years, have won more than Milan.
“They always play in Europe and are a very strong team."
