Vincenzo Montella has insisted he feels the full support of the AC Milan’s hierarchy, outlining the importance of the project the Serie A giants are currently undertaking.

Gerard Deulofeu scored late on to spare Gianluigi Donnarumma’s blushes and claim a fortunate 1-1 draw at high-flying Atalanta on Saturday, as Milan bounced back from their 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Roma last time out.

The draw has boosted Milan’s chances of claiming the final Europa League qualification spot in Italy’s top-flight, though extended the Rossoneri’s winless streak to five matches.

However, former Fiorentina and Sampdoria boss Montella claims to have Milan’s full backing, adding that he will still be in charge next season and is already planning his moves in the transfer market.

“I feel the club’s trust and there is a very important technical and economic project here,” Montella told Premium Sport.

“I am in agreement with the club that this team needs some improvement. It can definitely be improved with quality elements.

“But the team must think only in the present and I will be the coach next year. I am proud and happy to coach a team of this stature.
