AC Milan veteran Inzaghi admits knee injury hit him hard

AC Milan veteran Pippo Inzaghi admits his knee injury has hit him hard.

He will go under the knife in Barcelona with specialist Professor Ramon Cugat over the next few days.

"I will face this challenge the way I always took on my injuries. I struggled to accept it at first, because I was going through such a good period of form, especially after the brace against Real Madrid," he told Milan Channel.

"At the age of 37 it is a tough blow, but I want to return and I will celebrate again. I thank everyone for their affection and I wanted to personally read all the messages of support from the fans.

"I told my teammates that I want to come back for the final game and celebrate something important. Their support really moved me.

"I will really miss the atmosphere of the squad, as I see such a positive attitude. My teammates are strong and we are so eager to conquer an important trophy."
