AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani knows they face a huge challenge for the new season.

The Rossoneri will have a new look for the campaign after numerous veterans - such as Pippo Inzaghi, Gennaro Gattuso, Alessandro Nesta and Clarence Seedorf - quit the club.

"Today there is only Massimo Ambrosini left from the starting XI from the Athens Champions League Final," Galliani said.

"I'd like to say goodbye to all those players who have had to leave us because of their age. But the captain is still here…

"A young side? I don't understand this age thing. There are big players and small players, age is irrelevant."
