AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has sought to play down comments made by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Antonio Cassano.
The outspoken duo have seen their futures called into question in the wake of remarks made while away on international duty.
Ibrahimovic was with Sweden when he admitted to having grown 'tired of football'.
He said he would use the international break to consider his options.
Cassano, meanwhile, revealed while with Italy that he plans to retire in three years' time.
Ibrahimovic has just turned 30, while Cassano will only be 32 by the time he plans to call it a day.
Fears have been raised about the commitment of both players to the Milan cause, as they contemplate life after football.
Galliani, though, has sought to reassure supporters that the pair will continue to give their all for the reigning Serie A champions.
"I have spoken with the players and everything is fine," he told Corriere dello Sport.
"I talked repeatedly with Ibrahimovic. He absolutely wanted to go (and play for Sweden) and, with the aid of the Swedish Football Association, we were able to bring him back on Monday."
