Taiwo explains choosing AC Milan over Chelsea, Liverpool

Incoming AC Milan fullback Taye Taiwo has explained why he chose the Rossoneri ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool.

The Nigeria international is joining Milan on a Bosman from Marseille.

"I had some offers from the Premier League but I decided Milan because it is a big club at the same level as Chelsea or Manchester United," he told Gazzetta Dello Sport.

"I always wanted to be on a team with players of this quality and I am totally convinced my style of play will fit better in Italy than in England."
