AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has played down reports that the club could be about to cancel the contract of injury-hit defender Alessandro Nesta.
The 33-year-old centre-back has not featured for the Rossoneri at all this season, but Galliani insists that Nesta will be given every opportunity to get back on the field.
He told Il Messaggero: "With are waiting for Alessandro and we will continue to wait.
"Milan don't intend to give up on him because he is a great champion. We still hope that he can return to the Rossoneri team.
"We wouldn't have achieved so much in the Champions League without him. He has been a crucial player for Milan and we hope he continues to be."
