Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek remains coy about his future at the club with the focus channelled to securing Champions League football.


Piatek ended a run of five games without a goal on Sunday, his opener helping Milan beat Frosinone 2-0 to take their hopes of a top-four finish into the final day.

The Rossoneri are a point behind Inter and Atalanta, needing results to go their way to stand alongside a win to seal Champions League football.

“I feel better, I scored and I’m happy, also because we won. That was the important thing,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We’re only one point behind Inter and Atalanta so anything is possible, but first we must beat SPAL.

“We were hoping for a Juventus win, but it was only a draw. It’s a difficult time for us, but we hope to beat SPAL and that the other results go our way.

“We believe in qualification for the Champions League. It was hard to think that I’d have scored 30 goals in my first season coming from Poland.

“It was unthinkable. I’m not thinking about my future now, I’m just focused on the next game.

“I hope to play in the Champions League. That way, everything will be perfect.”
