thumbnail Hello,

Genoa miss out on Marco Amelia as he opts to stay with Milan, despite limited chances of regular action...

Marco Amelia would rather warm the Milan bench than play regularly for Genoa. The 28-year-old has rejected a chance to return to Liguria in order to remain with the Rossoneri.

Amelia has played just twice in Serie A this season as Christian Abbiati is the first choice.

The Grifone, who loaned him out to Milan last summer, wanted to take him back and replace Eduardo.

However, reports Amelia made it clear he wants to stay at Milan, despite knowing his chances are minimal.

He believes he can push Abbiati to the outer edges in the second half of the season and will fight for his place.

Milan still have the option to buy him at the end of the campaign, but it's not known as to whether they will use it.
