Released AC Milan midfielder Massimo Ambrosini has paid tribute to his old club.
The former club captain was released this week.
â€śThis isnâ€™t easy,â€ť he said at a Press conference on Friday. â€śIâ€™m emotional.
â€śI decided to wait a few days before talking as I didnâ€™t want to say something in the heat of the moment which wouldnâ€™t have done justice to my 18 years in Rossonero.
â€śI thank everyone, starting with President Silvio Berlusconi, Adriano Galliani and Ariedo Braida. It has been marvellous here, 18 years which I could never forget.â€ť
He also remarked: â€śIt is not up to me to say whether the club were right or wrong to let go of me.
â€śThere is nothing scandalous about it though. Iâ€™m 36, I gave a lot to Milan who had the right to make the decision they made.
â€śI would have liked to have been informed of their decision in a different way, but I am here to say thank you.
â€śI would have preferred that Galliani told me first, but I then logically had a conversation with him.
â€śLife goes on though. I still feel like a player and I want to continue being one. And Iâ€™m not leaving Milan with anger.â€ť
