Zapata proud to be AC Milan player

Cristian Zapata is proud to be playing for AC Milan.

Zapata initially joined Milan on a year's loan last season, before making his switch permanent last summer.

"It was amazing, I do not know what else to say to explain the happiness that I felt when I was told that Milan wanted me.

"Every since I was little, I had known about and loved Milan. They are a team full of champions, always at the top, and in fact I could not even think about it, it was an opportunity to be seized, and I did.

"The first day at Milanello? It is a crazy place. It is a structure that moves you greatly. You are surrounded by huge photos there of past champions, it is impossible not to be charmed. It is fantastic, really fantastic."
