(Reuters) - AC Milan coach Vincenzo Montella has renewed his contract until 2019, the Serie A club said on Tuesday.

The 42-year-old former striker led the club to sixth place in Serie A this season, securing a place in Europa League qualifiers after missing out on Europe for three years in a row.

Montella joined AC Milan a year ago from Genoa-based club Sampdoria, replacing Cristian Brocchi, who had been promoted from youth team coach on an interim basis following Sinisa Mihajlovic's sacking.
