Imminent Olympique Lyon signing Jean Alain Boumsong admits he's sad to be leaving Juventus.

The defender said: "I love this shirt, I love Juve. I gave everything for the team and now I am somewhat sad. Life is strange, if one day the Bianconeri were to ask me to return, I will do so gladly.

"For me, tomorrow, I begin a new life, I need to play. I've no regrets because I had few chances since the change of coach."
