Yoann Gourcuff accepts it's make-or-break time at AC Milan.
The French midfielder said: "I am now 21 years old, it's the moment to play, I need to show what I can do and find a place in this team.
"I hope to build on what I did last season and also to get into the France squad, which is important to me.
"I'll begin this season with confidence, I've known Milan for a year, now. I feel better amongst the squad, in the team. That makes it easier for me."
