Milan chief executive officer Adriano Galliani has moved to calm the waters after apparently aiming a sideswipe at want-away midfielder Gennaro Gattuso earlier this week.

Gattuso has threatened to leave the club in January after sliding down the pecking order this season under new boss Leonardo and there are reports the 31-year-old is poised to reject a contract extension to leave the San Siro.

Galliani appeared to issue a stark warning to Gattuso on Friday by saying that “Milan are not a hotel”, but the Rossoneri transfer guru has now insisted he was just being funny.

“I was going into the Lega Calcio headquarters and I was late,” he explained to Sky Sport Italia.

“They asked me about Gattuso and I made a joke that I hoped would be amusing.

“I answered that way because they were asking me when he would be leaving or when he would arrive. And I said ‘this is not a hotel’.

“But nothing has changed. We will meet with Gattuso at the end of the year, before the Christmas break and will come to a decision.”
