AC Milan defender Yepes targets more silverware in twilight of career

AC Milan defender Mario Yepes was delighted to finish his first season at the club a title winner.

The Colombian became an unexpected fan favourite in this title-winning campaign.

"I was always convinced that I was up to Milan's standards," he told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"At the start I was sad, as everyone had a chance to play except me. Adriano Galliani did well at that time, and I'm proud to have proved him right in choosing me.

"Competition is further motivation. The more important players like Philippe Mexes arrive, the higher Milan can aim."
