AC Milan's Zambrotta shrugs off Juventus jeers

AC Milan fullback Gianluca Zambrotta has no problem with the jeers coming from his former Juventus fans.

He said: "I did honestly expect this kind of reception, so I was prepared. I hope one day the people will understand. I spent extraordinary years at Juventus and if it weren't for Calciopoli, I would never have left.

"Juve didn't ask if I wanted to return, but Milan sought me out and it felt just like coming home. I grew up right near the Milanello training ground on Lake Como."
